Sylvan Lake has reinvented its old Enviro Expo, and residents have a chance to experience the new event.

On Friday from 2 to 7 p.m., 22 participants offering local shopping, tips on backyard gardening and wildlife awareness will be at the railway promenade, next to the Sylvan Lake Farmers Market.

Between 5 and 7 p.m., a full sit-down dinner is planned, the newest feature of the event.

Prepared entirely with food using a 100-km radius of Sylvan Lake, the dinner features chili, garden salad, rolls and sweets.

It costs $5 per person with proceeds going towards Growing Green Neighbours, the community’s gardening group.

An electronics round up is available to all residents interested in properly disposing of unwanted electronics.

The Medicine River Wildlife Centre will be on the main stage at 4 p.m. and the Doll Sisters will perform live and unplugged at 5 p.m.

Participants also have an opportunity to win one of two bicycles donated by Cast Away Sports and Terry’s Lease Maintenance, both of Sylvan Lake.
