Upcoming Winter Fun

There are quite a few festivals and special events in Edmonton this time of year.  One festival that happens this weekend is “All is Bright” the Christmas season opener on 124 Street.  The street will be closed to traffic and there are many things to enjoy up and down the street.

At the other end of downtown, the annual Santa Claus Parade will happen at 5 pm:

An event that I look forward to, every few months, is the Edmonton Public Library’s “Books2Buy” event at Stanley Milner Library, downtown.


This 3-day sale offers thousands of books, CDs, and DVDs for sale at $1-2 each!  This is an excellent place to get reading material about anything and everything that interests you.


Next week, the annual Festival of Trees will be held at Shaw Conference Centre.

This is a massive display of Christmas decorating and it’s a huge fundraiser for the University of Hospital Foundation.  The funds are used to purchase a lot of specialized equipment for the hospitals.

Don’t just stay at home this time of year!  Get out and have some fun!
