WATCH: Central Alberta’s sexiest show

The sexiest show in Central Alberta took over Westerner Park this weekend.

The Red Deer Taboo Show is in full swing until Sunday, with live entertainment and dozens of exhibitors.

The show has been in Red Deer for 13-plus years, said Kevin Blackburn, show director.

“It’s not the same old thing every year. There’s always new things happening, new seminars happening,” Blackburn said.

“We have different exhibitors each year with new products and our returning exhibitors who do the show year after year bring their new stuff too.”

More than 60 exhibitors filled the Stockmens Pavillon this year.

There are “a lot of different exhibitors from all over the country and even some from the States. It’s still a really well-oiled machine and super diverse. There’s kind of something down here for everybody,” said Blackburn.

Blackburn said, like any trade show, the Red Deer Taboo Show will grow and shrink depending on the economy.

Those who do come out always have a good time, he added.

“There’s all kinds of exciting things happening in the show,” he said. “We were looking forward to being back in Red Deer – it’s always a good time and a good town to party in.”

On St. Patrick’s Day Saturday, there was a $100,000 pot of gold draw with green beer and Guinness available. Blackburn described it as “the sexiest St. Patrick’s Day party in town.”

Some of the live entertainment throughout the weekend includes an aerial and floor acrobatics display from The Forum, the Body Heat All Male Revue, a dance performance, chair tease and the Miss Bum Bum North America Contest.

The show wraps up Sunday at 5 p.m.
