Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump will not present its Heritage Through My Hands event this year.

Centre staff have determined the event, which was traditionally held the same day as the nearby annual Fort Macleod Santa Claus Parade, resulted in unintended competition for patrons of both the parade and the centre.
The decision was also made in consideration of the fact that Alberta Arts Days, held Sept. 30 to Oct. 2, offered a similar range of activities as Heritage Through My Hands, with free admission for all three days.
The change means Head-Smashed-In will be able to take part in the Santa Claus Parade for the first time in many years, adding a major cultural component to the seasonal celebration on Saturday. The interpretive centre will be open regular hours that day with regular programming. Regular admission rates will apply.
