Location: Okotoks First Saturday Festival
Time: June 1, 2013 2-4pm
Join us as we be writerly and explore Okotoks. The town holds First Saturdays every month. We have no idea what these events are like because filling Station also runs Hot Dates with Blank Pages on the first Saturday of each month. Now, in summer's first sharp inhale of the year, get the best of both worlds!
If you would like to offer a ride or catch one out from Calgary to Okotoks, meet at the Safeway parking lot downtown (8th Street and 12th Ave) at 1pm. If you can, message Tsunami Purple Banjo Strings if you want to catch or offer a ride so we can get an idea for numbers. Otherwise, meet at where McRae Street meets Clark Ave in downtown Okotoks around 2 pm. (It may be busy so allow extra time for parking)
June's First Saturday is Art on the Streets and Artisan Market. Feel free to peruse at your leisure and stop to write at will. Things wrap up around 4, at which point we will head to Divine for coffee, potentially more writing, and chatting. Between the market and some of Okotoks' downtown shops, it may be worth bringing some cash to the event.
