The 6th annual Summer Oldstice brought vendors, shoppers and families together on Saturday, June 18th in Uptowne Olds. Debbie Olhausen says Uptowne Olds really aims to please their vendors, businesses and the public. So for 2017 they will be looking at a few changes for Summer Oldstice to make it more accessable for everyone - including using a smaller area to promote more walkability.
Throughout the day approximately 500 plus people attended the 2016 edition of Summer Oldstice, according to the Uptowne Olds Co-ordinator.
Debbie Olhausen says Art in the Park was a hit, the live music and the stage was just wonderful. She adds, the food vendors were good and the vibe was good with lots of families out with their children.
When it comes to the layout, Olhausen says - from the vendors viewpoint - the market was a bit too stretched out for people to walk through all of it, so there is always room for improvement and changes.
She recaps which parts of their kick off to summer event stood out to those who participated.
Olhausen says the next event Uptowne Olds is participating in will be the Tour of Alberta cycling race, which is bringing its stage two finish line to the town of Olds on September 2nd.
