The festival, running from Feb. 4 to 20, features cafes and businesses all along 82 Avenue and their specialty lattes and baked goods.

“It’s really focused on all the incredible and growing numbers of bakeries, cafes, ice cream shops — anything sweet — in Old Strathcona,” she said. “This is our slowest time of the year, coldest time of the year, and we just tried to think of something really creative that would encourage folks to come out to Old Strathcona.”
