Central Albertans are invited to join in the celebration of Lacombe’s historic Main Street on Thursday at the Flatiron Museum and Interpretive Centre.

Mayor Steve Christie and representatives from the provincial government, the Canadian Institute of Planners and other special guests will be taking part in a plaque dedication ceremony at 5 p.m. to recognize the town’s Main Street being named as the Best Street in Canada in 2013 by the Canadian Institute of Planners.

Five other winners were announced last November for the Great Places in Canada contest from 68 nominations.

One of the judges, Gary Noble, stated in a press release Lacombe’s Main Street was selected because “the heritage Edwardian buildings are seen as a valuable community resource not only to be appreciated but to be used.”

Light refreshments will be provided at the event and all are welcome.

The museum is located at 5005 50th Ave. For more information, contact 403-782-1228 or 403-782-1236.
