 There will be a variety of activities happening at the free family event from 5-9 p.m. live music from Karen Romanchuk and Pete Watson.

There will also be activities like last year’s favourite — line dancing lessons with the Windy Rafters Barn Dance.
 There will also be new activities including sugar beet carving as opposed to pumpkin carving.

“It’s interesting to see  where sugar comes from. It’s a big industry here,” said special programs co-ordinator Leslie Hall, who is excited to learn how to carve a sugar beet.
“The younger kids can just draw on them, ” she said.
“There will also be hay rides and we’ll be making stone soup,” she continued adding stone soup is when everybody in a community would gather and bring one item, all of which they would combine to make a gigantic pot of soup.

“It should be a lot of fun. There will be wagon rides with horses. It’s our second year, so we‘re bringing back some of  our old favourites form last year. We’ll be making mini-caramel apples. They’re bite sized so they’re easier to eat,” she enthused.
“ The best part of this is I get to put on events I think are really cool,” she said.
