Chances are that you've made your New Year's Eve plans by now as today's Okotoks real estate blog finds you in the final days of 2013. So instead of swaying you towards one affair or another for the evening of December 31st I thought I'd get you and our new residents off to a head start in the year ahead with a few event recommendations worth checking out in Okotoks for the entire month of January. Whether arts & culture, community contribution, or simply a good ol' night out on the town is your thing, there will be a little something for everyone in the following.
Recommended Okotoks Events for January 2014
Homeward Bound - Greg Pyra Exhibit @ Okotoks Art Gallery (Jan 10 - Feb 22)
Homeward Bound was selected for this Okotoks event list because of the subject matter intertwined with the masterful skill of oil painter Greg Pyra. That subject is the magnificent terrain of Alberta as seen through the interpretive eye of an artistic traveler. This series serves to document the nuances of the province in both past and present form, the roads cutting through our prairie landscape as it delivers wanderers from town to town, stopping at every service station, diner, and impromptu attraction along the way. Since Alberta and our quaint dwelling of Okotoks continues to draw its population from all over the country and continent, a visit to this exhibit is the perfect way to experience the province this winter before the open road of summer 2014 allows one to do so.

BAM! Percussion @ Rotary Performing Arts Centre (Jan 24, 8PM-10PM)
You could only spell and describe this performance with an exclamation mark! BAM! Percussion is one of the most energetic, engaging, and entertaining performance pieces around and we're excited to have it land in Okotoks to help launch the new year with a bang, over three weeks after the fireworks have subsided. Think of BAM! as the Blue Man Group that drank way too much Red Bull in one sitting, resulting in a mind blowing percussion session mixed with skit comedy. I swear you'll burn more calories by just sitting in attendance at this event. For tickets and further information visit www.bampercussion.com
Film Series 2014 @ Rotary Performing Arts Centre (Jan dates TBD)
It's only a matter of time before new residents having bought a new home for sale in Okotoks end up becoming regulars at Films @ RPAC. Every month welcomes attendees with a new cinematic theme with a mere two dollar price of admission to watch a classic film. Don't let the term "classic" fool you though, as it's not all Gone with the Wind and the like. Previous months featured flicks such as Die Hard, Alien, and even The Warriors - classics to many indeed! Keep up to date on the film schedule by following the events page on Facebook. Popcorn, snacks, and beer are served at each screening which further adds to the true movie experience. Films @ RPAC is definitely one of the best Okotoks community events in town, each and every month - I'll save you a seat!
