Weekend events more than a little bit country

Twenty-seven eight-foot tables were lined up on 104 Street Saturday night for the Morinville Centennial Community Gardens first Farm-2-Table Dinner. More than 200 diners from Morinville, St. Albert, Edmonton, Sturgeon County, Manitoba, and British Columbia came out to support the event. The four-course meal included local ingredients prepared by local chefs. The dinner was preceded by the Farmers’ Market Country Fair and followed by a street dance.
