Lloydminster has the world’s largest border markers. To signify the provincial boundary and the 4th meridian that marks the border, these four, 100 ft high giant survey markers were created. Four themes are represented: oil and gas, the Barr colonists, agriculture and native North Americans. The gap between pillars represents the actual border.

One of the first stops on our tour of Alberta’s roadside attractions. Tiny little town with little to no signs of life. The village of Chauvin once held an annual softball tournament that brought teams from all over western Canada. Citizens of Chauvin were very proud to host such a large function in their very small town. Although they no longer hold this event, Suzie has become the pride of the community.
