The town of Okotoks is gearing up for an exciting celebration of Alberta's rich culture and community spirit with "Alberta Day in the Park." A family event featuring entertainment, food, and a double feature of movies that were filmed here in Alberta.
Alberta became a province on September 1, 1905. In recognition of this anniversary and in celebration of the province’s unique spirit, culture, and heritage, the Provincial Government designated September 1 as Alberta Day.
The Town is offering a free event to celebrate the day with the rest of the province.
Food Trucks be on-site starting at 4:00 PM. The "Family Fry Guy" and "The Mini Donut Factory" will be offering a delectable selection of treats.
At 6:00 PM, the first of the two Alberta-made movies will grace the screen. Starting will be 2019's Jumanji: The Next Level, starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Kevin Hart (rated PG-13.) Following that, at approximately 8:15 PM, will feature the 2006 comedy RV, starring Robin Williams (rated PG.)
Residents and visitors are encouraged to bring their own chairs and blankets and make their way to Ethel Tucker Park/Arts & Learning Plaza for an evening that celebrates the province of Alberta and the magic of cinema under the stars.
