As of Feb. 1, voters could do their part to elevate Rimbey to being the community of choice for a mini Big Valley Jamboree.

The community could, if it gets enough votes, win a contest through Big Valley Jamboree called Small Town Saturday Night.

The winner will host a country music concert in town headlined by popular country music singer Gord Bamford.

The concert, if held in Rimbey, will be performed at the Agrim Centre on April 29 and all proceeds will go to the local Boys and Girls Club.

Online voting will begin on Feb. 1 and run until Feb. 15 in order to select ten finalists. Film crews will travel to each of the top 10 communities to create a two-minute video.

Voting will begin again on March 13 and run until March 27.

A Big Valley Jamboree Bandit membership is needed in order to vote online. Members can vote once per day.
