Description:
If you love cars, check out the 65th Carena Anniversary Celebration on May 19th in the Town of Viking!  It's a fantastic day of celebration for the arena complex consisting of a great car show and a planned showcase of how the complex was established.


Did you know that the Carena Complex in Viking was largely funded through an enormous fundraiser spanning three years and featuring 43 cars raffled off?  Wow! ??

The community of Viking is hoping to create a look back at this incredible fundraising event and find the winners of the 43 cars won during this fundraiser hosted from 1950 to 1953 for the stories and photos of the event.  Stories about the reactions of the winners, trips taken in the cars, and what eventually happened to the cars - these are but a few of the interesting tidbits that the Carena Complex plans to feature in celebration 65 years later.  Information and photos gathered will be incorporated into the 65th anniversary recognition display at the Carena facility. 


*Do you know someone who won a car?  Please let them know about this historical project!  Information can be Emailed to info@goeastofedmonton.com.
