It was a great weekend at Peace Island Park as Taylor hosted the 38th Annual World’s Invitational Class “A” Gold Panning Championships. The Gold Panning Weekend held not only gold panning competitions, but many other activities like arts & crafts, metal detecting, bannock baking and even a parade on Saturday morning. The weekend was a huge success as many people, adults and kids alike, came out to Peace Island to watch and participate in the competitions.


The gold panning competitions held three classes: Class “A”, Class “B” and Class “C”. Each of these classes represent different skill levels with Class “A” being the most skilled. Competitors in each class needed to complete three rounds in an allotted time: fine (find 15 gold flakes), skill (find 5 flakes) and speed (find one gold nugget).
