Come Walk Among Us - June 15 in Alix

Come Walk Among Us 

All day Saturday, June 15th in the Village of Alix 

Be part of a busy village in rural Alberta on a typical Saturday of days gone by.

Experience history through the eyes of Irene Parlby of the “Famous Five” as she takes you on a guided tour of Main Street where you will meet other characters from the past. Mingle with the farmers and artisans who have come to town to sell you their wares, to socialize and play.

Participate in this unique period of our province’s heritage as you: enjoy homemade pie and delightful lunch options, watch butter and ice cream being made or see a carding and spinning demonstration at the museum, marvel at the antique cars and machinery, listen to live music, take a walk on the beautiful Alix Lake Nature
Trail or go for a horse and wagon ride.

Top off the day by watching a POLO GAME “the sport of kings” –– as it was played here in the early 1900’s.
