Moose Jaw in Frisco is celebrating its 50th anniversary this weekend with events Friday and Saturday night, Nov. 17-18. 

In November 1973, owner Lynda Colety opened the Moose Jaw in Frisco, and this year the establishment is celebrating its 50th anniversary

The bar will celebrate this weekend with events Friday and Saturday night. There will be a private party from 5-9 p.m. at the Moose Jaw. Doors open to the public at 9 p.m. Live music will be played by local band The Big Onion. 

“Our real special event comes Friday when the oldsters come down. They love it so much,” Colety said.

Colety wanted a special event for her longtime friends, and she knew that they might not want to “party all night,” so she made the event start on the earlier side. 

On Saturday, there will be a celebration open to the public starting at 8 p.m. Live music will be played by the John Trucelli Band. 

Despite this being the 50th anniversary party, Colety said it will be like “just another Saturday at the Moose Jaw.”
