One of the most anticipated events in Turner Valley continues to bring families outdoors for a fun-filled day.
Turner Valley’s Discover Days in Millennium Park attracts crowds of more than 1,000 people to take in a wide array of family-friendly activities including crafts, food or games. The fun begins June 3 at 11 a.m. following the Diamond Valley Parade in nearby Black Diamond.
The busy day of activities includes an outdoor market featuring vendors with locally produced and sourced products and services, face painting, a petting zoo, bouncy castles and Zorb Ball Collision Course, vehicle extrication demonstration by local firefighters and a display of old vehicles by the Foothills Model T Ford Club in the parking lot of the Dr. Lander Memorial Pool.
Pop into the Sheep River Library to check out its indigenous book display and annual book sale or take a dip next door in the outdoor pool.
Down the street at the Valley Neighbours Club, the Sheep River Arts Council hosts its Rhubarb Festival between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., offering a choice of rhubarb pie or crisp with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and a sweet rhubarb beverage. Head next door to browse the popular quilt show featuring dozens of unique patterns and vote for your favourite starting at noon. Plenty of food will be on site catering to everyone’s needs from gluten-free to vegetarian options.
Discovery Days is a green event that aims to recycle the majority of its waste with four waste station throughout the park, as well as a junior water buggy in the Sheep River Library parking lot. Eco ambassadors will be on hand to educate the public about reducing waste.
