Our Okotoks Real Estate Team loves the holiday season, and we like to share information about holiday events around the Okotoks and Calgary areas for you to enjoy! We also like to attend many of these wonderful events, so if you recognize us from our Calgary & Okotoks real estate team bio page - please say HI!
Light Up Okotoks – Light Up Okotoks is a local celebration to kick off the Christmas season in our quaint town. The lighting of the Community Christmas Tree & light show will take place at The Plaza at 7 pm. You can also take in the festivities at the many local shops and street vendors with late night shopping until 9 pm! There will be craft sales at the Elks Hall and Okotoks Public Library.
There will be an ice sculpture demo in front of the Municipal Centre. Warm up in the Okotoks Art Gallery & Okotoks Museum with some hot chocolate and cookies. There will be children’s crafts in the attic and photos with Santa. With horse drawn wagon rides, fire pits, carollers, dancers and live reindeer it will be a very festive night. Don’t forget to bring a non-perishable donation to the Food Bank. To finish off the night, enjoy the fireworks set off from Lineham Park – visible from anywhere around the downtown area.
