Rimbey and District Horticultural Group hosts annual Horticultural and Craft Show

Crafts, and veggies, and flowers, oh my

Whether it is coaxing life from the ground or creating crafts with your hands, the Rimbey and District Horticultural Group is once again holding its Annual Horticultural and Craft Show, and there is something for everyone.

The festivities begin Aug. 18, when participants can bring their entries to the Rimbey Drop-in Centre. On Aug. 19 at 10 a.m. the show opens to the public and the awards presentation starts at 3 p.m.

“It’s a wonderful event to come and see,” said horticultural co-ordinator Donna Heilemann.

Between the horticultural flowers and vegetables, the quilts and crafts, and the youth section, the Horticultural and Craft Show can be enjoyed by all ages.

“It covers a lot of stuff … They’re usually always spectacular,” said Heilemann.

“The people have put their heart and soul into their crafts and their growing,” she added.

Presented to the winners of the categories will be ribbons and cash prizes.

“It’s such a wonderful event to see everybody’s talents,” said Heilemann.

“It’s an agricultural learning experience too,” she added.
