This year's "Teddy Bear Hunt" is ready to go in the downtown core of Okotoks.

The event will see families travelling across town to various teddy bear displays with activities set up along the way for all ages.

The town of Okotoks is partnering up with the Foothills Children’s Wellness Network, non-profits within the community, Town services and local businesses.

According to the town, families are encouraged to bring along a picnic lunch, as well as their own favourite teddy bears to have a check-up at a special Bear Care Clinic. Walking or biking is recommended.

There will also be a Teddy Bear Hunt photo contest.

The Teddy Bear Hunt kicks off at 10 a.m. on Thursday, July 7th.
