For 30 years Red Deer County’s Rural Beautification Tour has given residents an opportunity to showcase their unique properties.

The Rural Beautification Tour will take place on July 26th, and will highlight diverse properties in the Bowden and Innisfail areas.

Every year a variety of properties are featured from different divisions in the Red Deer County; this year division four is to be showcased.

“It’s a really enjoyable day, people will be able to see the diverse range of properties in our County,” said Community Services Manager Jo-Ann Symington.

Tour participants will be picked up from the CrossRoads Church, bused throughout the county, and picked up in Innisfail at the end of the tour.

Individuals will be able to enjoy the seven properties that have been nominated in selected categories including working farm, small acreage, agricultural business or tourism, small farm and large acreage.

People on the tour will be the judges of the properties.

“We’re very participation orientated,” Symington added.

Property winners showcased on the tour will receive a hand-carved cedar gate sign that states their beatification accomplishments, while the overall winner in addition to that will also receive a trophy to display for the year.

Symington added there isn’t a criterion for properties to be nominated, however, all properties are diverse and worthy of a nomination.

She later said the Rural Beautification Tour is well received by the community, as it is a wonderful opportunity to show the county.

For inquiries or ticket sales, residents can contact Sylvia Bolkowy of Red Deer County Community Services.
