Market Square’s Summer Kick-Off Party

June 19, 2015

Flag_of_AlbertaIn the 13 days leading up to Canada Day, we will herald one province or territory per day – today we celebrate Alberta.

Our Summer Solstice weekend begins at 12:30pm with our annual Black Box Mixology Competition as part of Market Square’s kickoff to summer. All Market Square Restaurants will participate in the 3rd annual Black Box Mixology Contest to create a signature Boardwalk beverage; to be sold at all Market Square Boardwalk restaurants. The winner will earn the title of the Boardwalk’s Top Bartender and their drink will be featured in all Boardwalk restaurants for the whole summer! We bring the majestic Rockies to our fair city with the spirits of the province – pun intended! The spirits used for our signature drinks’ competition will be exclusively from Alberta distilleries, whose flavours are renowned the world over!

Listen for the Whistle! Join us on the Market Square Boardwalk and when the work whistle blows at 5pm, the weekend is here! Folks from around the region will be chosen to pull the whistle every Friday at 5pm – Mayor Mel Norton and Council will blow the first whistle of the summer. Enjoy a FREE BBQ served by Mayor Mel Norton & Council, Pepsi and Moosehead Radler sampling, frozen treats, and a sample of the tastes of Market Square. The night will start with a bang as fireworks explode in the sky over the Coast Guard Site. Be sure to take in the first of Market Square’s weekly Electro Pop Biergartens, featuring:
