The Avenue of Trees marks the kickoff to the Christmas Season in the Foothills. The Okotoks Recreation Center (99 Okotoks Drive) is transformed into a Christmas wonderland of beautifully decorated trees to raise funds for health and wellness in our communities. This year we will also be hosting Pictures with Santa evenings amongst these beautifully decorated trees. Bid on your favourite, place a silent auction bid or attend the live auction event on December 6th. Vote for your fan favourite on the Sheep River Health Trust Facebook page.

It all takes place from November 17th to December 6th.

Trees will be judged by local celebrities and the public. Judges will pre‐select 10 Trees for Live Auction and all remaining trees will be sold by silent auction bidding.
