Pouce Coupe
GATEWAY TO THE PEACE COUNTRY
Gateway to the
Peace Country
Every year, thousands of people line the
Village streets to watch the Canada Day
parade. The July 1st activities continue
at Pouce Coupe Park with a traditional
pit BBQ, live entertainment, kids games
and a craft fair. The festivities culminate
with a spectacular fireworks display.
The name "Pouce Coupe"
is both musical and
intriguing, and various tales
are told of its origin. The
most authentic is that given
in
The Land of Twelve Foot
Davis by J.C. MacGregor,
McLeod's Fort Dunvegan
Journal, 1806 reads:
"Sunday 17 August, Pouce
Coupe with a few others
arrived. They have made a
poor hunt", referring to an
Indian Chief Pooscapee of
the Beaver Tribe.
