Stettler's World Famous Polar Express
The Polar express is in it's second year and it brings with it positive economic impact to our community. It also garners rave reviews like the following from sandinmyshorts67:

We just finished riding the express with our grandchildren. It was amazing, we drove six hours from Saskatchewan and it was worth every penny. One of the best Christmas activities I have ever done. My grand daughter was so excited and is still talking about it. We went went on the six thirty train, so we spent the afternoon walking down main street, shopping, and sightseeing. The shopping was awesome, the staff at all the stores we went into were so friendly. Thank you for the gingerbread man from the bakery. There is a lot of history downtown, my grandson loved the Rolex watch clock neon sign. Well worth the walk.
