Okotoks has big plans to ring in Canada’s 150th year.
A three-day celebration kicks off on Friday, June 30 with a free outdoor concert at the Olde Towne Plaza featuring Canadian music from 6 to 9 p.m.
“It will be local artists playing Canadian music, so whether it’s their own music or another artist’s music, it will all be Canadian,” said Okotoks community events specialist Mark Doherty.
The festivities on Canada Day begin at 10 a.m. with the unveiling of the new mural wall on Veteran’s Way in honour of Okotoks’ fallen soldiers.
Annual multi-cultural Canada Day celebrations run at the Okotoks Recreation Centre from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., offering a range of activities for visitors – featuring free multi-cultural foods of the world, while quantities last, bouncy castles and crafts, and multi-cultural entertainment.
A cake cutting takes place at noon.
