It’s our first Christmas as a family of four and I couldn’t be more excited to take in all of the magical festivities our city has to offer. Here are a few of the events we’re most looking forward to this holiday season:
Location: The Enjoy Centre
Dates: November 22, 2018 to January 19, 2019
Glow is the largest indoor Christmas festival in the capital region. Illuminated sculptures, playgrounds and the twinkle of half a million lights make the perfect backdrop for holiday selfies and family fun. Their Christmas market featuring local makers is sure to satisfy that Christmas shopping itch and of course the cozy indoor atmosphere is great for families with young kiddos that may not be able to weather cold outdoor temps for extended periods. We can’t wait to take in the magic of all that is Glow !
Location: Edmonton EXPO Centre
Dates: November 22-25, 2018
Make It! is always our annual girls day out - not only is admission inexpensive ( you can get early bird tickets for $4 ) the caliber and variety of artisans featured is truly amazing. You can even grab an adult beverage in the food truck/beer gardens area when you’re done exploring.
Location: Prairie Gardens & Adventure Farm (Bon Accord)
Dates: December 2, 15 & 16, 2018
Hayrides, an indoor petting farm, Christmas crafts and pictures with Santa await at Prairie Gardens this holiday season. The farm is a favourite summer spot for us to visit but why not for Christmas too! Head out of the city - get a little bit of crisp fresh air during the hayrides then head indoors for more festive fun. Paisley loves visiting with the birds at her nanny’s house and I’m sure the take and make sunflower bird feeders will be a fast favourite !
Location: Londonderry Mall
Dates: December 11 & 12
We had the pleasure of meeting the local Grinch and his dog max at an echo cycle Xmas photo booth event last year and let me tell you they are the real deal! Meet the Grinch for pictures with Santa and Mrs. Clause at Londonderry Mall and capture an image that will long be a favourite in your family photo book.
Location: City Market Downtown - Edmonton City Hall
Dates: December 1, 8 & 15, 2018
Each gingerbread house kit comes with fresh baked gingerbread, icing, a piping bag, a foil covered wooden board for your house to sit on and a selection of delicious candies! You will also get $5 in City Market Bucks (per kit) to spend on local goodies at the farmers' market after the workshop.
Wishing all of our amazing followers and friends a happy holiday season !!
