In August, the Red Deer Advocate began asking readers to tell us the best of what Red Deer and area has to offer.
Our readers voted in more than 100 categories ranging from favourite piece of public art to favourite place for ice cream.
The overwhelming response showed us you do have your favourite places to shop, hang out, have fun and do business.
And while there was only one winner in each category, the real winners are the people in Red Deer and area.
With its wealth of shops and services, entertainment venues and restaurants, Red Deer is an ideal place to live, raise a family, visit or do business.
Join us in celebrating our inaugural A-List.
See if your favourites made the list or see if there’s something new here you’ve yet to discover. The results are available in Friday’s Advocate.
