This weekend was a crazy busy one for the Eagle Street Team!

Millarville Fair

Saturday, August 17th marked the first day of the 112th Annual Millarville Fair. While at the fair you could wander the bench exhibits where locals competed in everything from baking, art, to flower arrangements. Spectators enjoyed watching the tractor pulling competition. While at the Millarville fair kids could get their face painted, visit some animals at the petting zoo, and bounce on inflatables. The Millarville market had many local vendors offering fresh produce, handmade jewelry, and my favorite mini doughnuts.

Chinook Honey Farm

Farms across Alberta opened its doors to the public for Alberta Farm Days this weekend. Alberta Farm Days allowed the community to learn about how food gets from the farm to the table through tours of their facilities. At the Chinook Honey Company, the Eagle Street Team learned about bees. A nectar walk highlighted vital plants local to the Foothills that sustain the honey bee. The observation hive was a great way to see directly into the hive. While at the Chinook Honey Company, you could partake in a 'Bee to Bottle' demonstration explaining the process of turning honey into mead. Before heading off to Yogatoks, the Eagle Street Team visited Snowball and Isabella the donkeys. They wore cute straw hats just for the occasion.


Health and wellness businesses within the community came together for this year's Yogatoks. Community members got their stretch on at Ethel Tucker Park. People brought their yoga mats and even their dogs to do a little downward-facing dog in the park. Vendors offered different services to help one get their zen on. Energy healing through a reiki treatment, fortune-telling your past present and future, and a deep tissue massage were all available to try. Local musicians played covers of their favorite songs throughout the day. Ariel tutorials by Spectacle Blue were a blast for both adults and kids.

Off The Vine Winefest

At the Okotoks Art Gallary, the Town of Okotoks hosted the 2nd Annual Off the Vine Winefest. The adult ticketed event offered the combination of food and wine from local vendors. The outdoor event had live blues and jazz music that added to the classy night out on the town.

Okotoks Show and Shine

Classic cars, trucks, and sports cars lined the streets of Downtown Okotoks on August 18th. Car enthusiasts spent the day admiring the beautiful vehicles on display. The Eagle Street Team enjoyed a delicious burger for lunch at the Kinsmen Club BBQ. Outside the Okotoks Art Gallery, spectators could do a little shopping at the youth market. Young entrepreneurs were selling handmade art and knitted goods. The Eagle Street Team was set up in front of the station handing out some delicious freezies and getting people signed up to win the Ram1500 Sport. Make sure you check out to be entered to win.
