It was a celebration of local business in Morinville.
 
On Oct.21, the Morinville and District Chamber of Commerce held their annual awards gala. The theme for this year was an "unmask-querade" party.
 
"Locally, the support that we had has been overwhelming. Really, it's been a little bit mind-boggling to us," said Josh Watson with the Sturgeon Brewing Company, who won the New Business of the Year Award. "The community has really embraced us with open arms. We couldn't have hoped for things to go better."
