It's Max the Moose's 55th birthday today!
Max the Moose has been a focal point of the Dryden community and an attraction for travellers. He is located on the Trans Canada Highway in Dryden near the tourism building.
The week-long celebration of the 5.6 metre high statue has had Dryden "Taking it to the Max"! Max the MooseFest is celebrated every year, where many events happen bringing the community together! Some include live music, games, sports, fishing tournaments, and even moose call challenges!
