The Fort Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce's Business Awards is breaking records this year.
Over 500 nominations for nine awards poured in for the sold out evening.
"I think that, really, it's a testament to what an amazing event last year's was, going to Ross Creek and having Sawmill be the caterer, having great entertainment, people couldn't wait to get to the event this year," said Chamber executive director, Tamara Dabels. "It really is the business event of the year."
With entertainment courtesy of local band, The Whiskey Boyz, months of hard work will culminate into one amazing night.
"The record number of nominations, it really means people are paying attention and appreciating the hard work that everybody puts into their business, the commitment and contribution to our community," added Dabels.
Awards up for grabs include New Business of the Year, Franchise of the Year, Environmental Stewardship, Marketing Excellence, Entrepreneurial Spirit, Industry Excellence, Customer Service, Home-based Business of the Year and Small Business of the Year.
