I have posted information about round dances previously, and I really recommend that you visit at least one, if you never have. There are always a lot of ceremonies prior to the actual dancing: the pipe ceremony, the feast, and a lot of prayers. The dancing and singing is likely to begin around 7, or later. This is a very convenient location, easy to reach on foot, by bicycle, bus, or LRT. There is also a lot of parking at and near the university, but it’s not cheap, and you have to pay any time of day.
The very best deal in town for people who love books is the Books2Buy sale that the Edmonton Library holds several times a year. Collect books, CDs, and DVDs for only $1-2 each. Go early for the best selection, and go on Sunday to fill a big box with materials for only $10!

I may have already mentioned this, but there are many events during the Edmonton winter, and one that’s really unique is the amazing Ice Castle that has been built in Hawrelak Park. Everything is created from ice, and you can explore inside the castle, enjoying the beautiful lights, inside and outside.
Enjoy your winter. It’s more difficult than summer, but it’s really interesting and exciting in a different way!
