One of the most anticipated events of the year is only getting bigger and better.
Turner Valley’s Discovery Days attracts crowds of over 1,000 to take in a wide array of activities to satisfy everyone’s interests whether they love crafts, food, games, music or sports.
“It’s a huge event and we try to get many community groups involved,” said Hazel Martin, community events co-ordinator for the Town of Turner Valley. “We have visitors from all around the area that come. It’s very well attended. It’s a popular event.
There are children that look forward to this event every year.”
The fun starts on June 6 at 11 a.m. following the Diamond Valley parade in nearby Black Diamond. The busy day of activities features a country market, face-painting, bouncy castles and a new addition this year is a climbing wall, to name just a few. Elsewhere, the Sheep River Library offers a book sale and the Foothills Lions club’s duck derby also has its draw at 2 p.m.
Down the street at 133 Sunset Blvd, the Sheep Creek Arts Council hosts its annual Rhubarb Festival from 1 to 4 p.m. and its Quilt show 11 to 4 p.m. with a bake sale planned for 11 a.m.
Next door, the Valley Garden Club will host its annual garden sale throughout the day.
Shuttle service will be running from Turner Valley to Black Diamond with a couple stops to be made available along the route.
