Thank you!

22 May

Thank you for coming to Otafest 2014!
We hope you're recovering well, most of the staff are waking up from their "Ota-coma" just now.

We couldn't be more proud of our community right now. 7,787 people came together to raise $13,500 for the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society! Both of these numbers are groundbreaking, this year had the highest attendance numbers as well as the highest amount of money raised for charity in Otafest's history and it's all thanks to you.
