I cringe to say this but the leaves are turning, a little snap of cooler weather is in the morning air and big yellow buses are popping up everywhere around town and countryside. The weather is beautiful and I think we are going to have a lovely Fall to enjoy all the wonderful activities going on in the area. With so much going on this September Long Weekend your Okotoks Realtor is reminding you again of all the happenings about town.
