Charley Pride plays the Centrium June 19th

April 10, 2019

Fans throughout Alberta were ecstatic to learn that CHARLEY PRIDE – one of the biggest country music stars of all time – will return to Red Deer for a one night performance on June 19th in The Centrium at Westerner Park.

Country legend Charley Pride

CHARLEY PRIDE, who first appeared in Canada in 1968, has always has warm feelings about his performances here, stating that Canadian country music fans are some of the greatest most loyal fans in the world. Having recently returned from a whirlwind performance tour in Australia and New Zealand, “The Pride of Country Music” is still celebrating his 25th year as a member of Nashville’s world famous Grand Ole Opry.

CHARLEY PRIDE, who recently turned 85 is singing better than ever, and his 2019 show which also features his renowned band “The Pridesmen” will take fans on a real “trip down memory lane” as he focuses on the songs that have made him an iconic legend in Country Music.

Still making his home in Dallas Texas, Charley knows what it takes to please his audience and is often greeted with a standing ovation before the first song is finished. There is nothing outdated about his music as he continues to feature many of his thirty six “Number One Hits” in every show, always leaving fans satisfied with such songs as “Kiss An Angel Good Morning”, “Crystal Chandeliers”, “All I Have To Offer You Is Me”, “I’m So Afraid of Losing You Again”, and “Is Anybody Goin’ To San Antone”.

In addition to bringing forth some of the most legendary songs in country music his most recent CD… “Music In My Heart”… is “possibly the best CD he has ever released”. In this most recent project Pride clearly shows he is not afraid to record traditional sounding songs that he knows his long-time fans expect and will enjoy.

Zed haunted house

Once again Red Deer’s Most Fatal Attraction will open its doors for two weeks to entertain all ages during the Halloween season. The 29th Annual Zed Haunted House presented by Border Paving runs from October 16th through October 31st at the former GoAuto location in Red Deer. This year’s theme is “You’re Never Alone in the Dark” and promises to be a scream.

The event runs each evening during the event from 6:00pm to 10:00pm, with special feature evenings throughout the event. General admission is $15 at the door, with priority entry “Spook Pass” admissions available for purchase online for $20. Group passes (minimum 10 attendees) are also available in advance by calling or visiting Youth HQ.

Afternoon matinees, geared to children under 10 years of age, occur on Saturday and Sunday during the event’s run from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. Other feature nights include Freaky Friday (October 18), Date Night (October 19), Friday Fright Night (October 25), the Saturday Spooktacular (October 26), Wicked Wednesday (October 30), and a special trick-or-treat edition on All Hallows Eve (October 31).

Midnight Madness returns again this year, sponsored by CARSTAR Red Deer, on Friday, October 25. Running from midnight-2am, the cast prepares to reopen the Haunted House and ups the scare factor. This show is restricted to attendees 18+, with general admission tickets $20 at the door.

John Johnston, Community Engagement Manager for Youth HQ, says the effort put forth by a team of dedicated volunteers has been incredible. “We wouldn’t be able to put on this event without the countless hours of dedication from our volunteers. Between building walls, painting, character training…you name it. The dedication of some really skilled people has made this a success already.”
