Administrative history

St. Albert opened its doors to young athletes from across the province in 1979, when the city hosted the Alberta Summer Games on August 2-6. The Games featured "Festival '79", a cultural celebration designed to enhance the Games through the involvement of the cultural community. The Festival ran for 17 days, and included events such as a craft fair and sale, a fiddling competition, a backgammon tournament, plays, street dances, and a seniors' choir festival.
