In 1967 St. Paul was designated as the "Centennial Star" and we are hoping to show that same spirit 50 years later.
In 2017 we will be celebrating Canada's 150 Anniversary as well as the 50th Anniversary of the Town of St. Paul's Landing Pad.
The Canada 2017 Steering Committee has begun to meet and collect various ideas and suggestions for an event that celebrates Canada's 150th Birthday and the 50th Anniversary of the Landing Pad.
Planning has begun and we are asking for your help in honouring our history, celebrating the present and looking to the future! Get involved as an individual or come and represent your group or organization. We are encouraging everyone to get involved in some way.
For more information or to submit some ideas call 780-645-5820.
UFO Landing Pad
Out of this world...
In 1967, a proposal was made to build the world's first UFO Landing Pad as a landmark for the town. The Government of Canada responded to this proposition and, during the grand opening on June 3 1967, St. Paul was declared the Centennial Capital of Canada.
In the 1990's Mayor Paul Langevin officially opened an adjacent UFO tourist information centre to welcome visitors. As you enter St. Paul from the West, drop in to visit this landmark and see the UFO exhibit downstairs. This is an opportunity to view actual photographs of UFOs, crop circles and cattle mutilations. The exhibit is designed to educate. A UFO Hotline compliments the display with reports of UFO sightings and encounters of all kinds.
Located beside the UFO landing Pad is the Tourist Information Centre. For Hours of operation follow the link.
