Summer Fun ~ Edmonton Style
*This post does not contain any affiliate links*
The movie theaters are fighting to keep you inside with movies like Solo and Jurassic World Fallen Empire while the community is trying to keep you outside. Who will win this summer?
I’m new to Edmonton but boy do they suddenly have a lot of stuff going on. From the zoo to the streets there’s something for everyone. How do I know? These are just a few of the advertisements and things I’ve come across. This is hardly an exhaustive list.
Why not visit The Edmonton Valley Zoo? -It’s home to more than 350 animals and focuses on conservation, and is one of Edmonton’s premier attractions. For hours and directions check out their link here. – https://www.edmonton.ca/attractions_events/edmonton-valley-zoo.aspx
Prefer to mingle with the artists?
How does this sound?
A 4 km walk through the hearts and minds of artists. Cultural explorers are invited to see art-making in action on the streets of Old Strathcona, a vibrant art district in the historic center of Edmonton, Alberta. Over 450 visual artists bring their art supplies and artworks out into the streets. Together they create an outdoor studio and gallery spanning several blocks. The Whyte Avenue Art Walk reveals Alberta’s hidden talent and provides an opportunity for patrons to curate their own art collection from many undiscovered masters. 3 Days, Hundreds of Artists – http://art-walk.ca/home
