With the rainy days of spring behind us (hopefully) and summer finally here, friends and families in our area have some pretty wonderful opportunities to take part in. As many of us in central Alberta already know, the Big Valley Jamboree is a hot spot for the latest and greatest country singer's. With over 100,000 people turning the wickets daily, there truly is something for everyone at this fantastic event. The Jamboree starts on Thursday August 1st with a kickoff party featuring Brother's Osbourne and Charlie Major. The concert lasts all weekend and wont disappoint.
For the golfer in the area, there are many courses to challenge every type of player. Some of our favourites are Silver Creek Golf Course https://silvercreekgolfcourse.com/ located in New Norway, Coal Creek Golf Resort http://coalcreekgolfresort.com/ just north of Round Hill and Double Dam Golf Course https://doubledamgolfcourse.com/ located about 25 minutes south east of Camrose.
For families with little one's the Chickadee Trail new Gwynn is a great free walk where you can get up close and personal with wild bird's and animals. Bring some sunflowers or bird seed and sit still and see if you are one of the lucky ones to have a chickadee eat from your hand. https://www.alltrails.com/explore/recording/chickadee-trail-near-gywnne--2
