Take a Saturday walk into the past as the Village of Alix offers a look at its history.

People are invited to experience the history of the small Central Alberta village on June 15 through the eyes of Irene Parlby, Alberta’s first female cabinet minister, as she takes you on a guided tour of Main Street, where people will meet other characters from the past.

As well, people can mingle with farmers and artisans who would have come to town to sell their wares, socialize and play — in this case there will be a polo game to watch. Pie and lunch options will be available during the day.

Registration for the event starts at 9 a.m. at the Alix Youth Centre, 4803 50th Ave. in Alix, with the first walking tour starting at 10 a.m. and the second tour going at 1 p.m.

The event costs $30 for youth, adults and seniors and $20 for children 12 and under.

Bus transportation is available from Red Deer and camping is available in Alix.
