The Ryder Lake Ramble will be in full swing again this year, starting Saturday June 11 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and carrying on Sunday June 12, from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The Ryder Lake Ramble was first organized in 1998 to help showcase the beautifully unique and exotic community tucked away in the quaint sub-alpine valley in the Cascade Mountain range.

Since then the event has drawn upwards of thousands of people each year. Other rural neighbourhoods throughout B.C. and Alberta are now using the Ramble as a guide to showcase their own unique communities.

The Ramble is designed to provide visitors with a tour of the exceptional locale, with homeowners opening up their properties for guests to stroll through their gardens, visit their miniature donkeys, alpacas, sheep and in special cases, watch demonstrations such as spinning wool or preparing a draft horse for work.

Admission for the Ramble is $5 a person, or $15 for a carload. Tickets can be purchased at 48180 Elk View Rd., or at the Ryder Lake Hall located at 49265 Elk View Rd.

Homemade muffins and cinnamon buns with tea or coffee will be available in the  morning at the Hall, and soups, salads, breads, hot dogs and desserts will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

There will also be a plant sale at the Hall. Some plants and various artisan products will be available for purchase at select stops along the tour as well.

There are some locations on the tour that will only be open to the public on Saturday, these locations will be specified in the program received when purchasing tickets.

No pets please.
