Mother’s Day at the Edmonton Zoo
If you want to do something a little different, then you can take your mom out to the Edmonton Valley Zoo where you can not only spend time with your own mother but watch the animal matriarch’s get pampered as well. The event will feature magic shows, airbrushing, animal encounters, planting activities and live music, plus a special mini-massage for your mom! The event kicks off at noon on May 8th and will run until 9:00 p.m.
Mother’s Day Brunch
One of the most traditional and basic things you can do for the most special lady in your life is taking her to brunch the morning of Mother’s Day. You can’t go wrong with a brunch, but you can probably go wrong with the restaurant. There are plenty of great restaurants around Edmonton that are offering Mother’s Day specials for brunch – like the 4404 Restaurant’s buffet that features two carving stations and even a seafood station, or Ampersand27’s $40 buffet that includes coffee juice, mimosas are only $5!
Mother’s Day Run, Walk & Ride
Another interesting event you can attend that might be different than previous years is the Mother’s Day Run, Walk & Ride sponsored by SportChek. With events for moms and children of all ages, the events kick off with a arm up at 8:45 a.m. and will run until an award ceremony at 11:00 a.m. The course runs all around Hawrelak Park starting at 9330 Groat Road, and parking will be available right there at the Park, or at nearby Emily Murphy Park as well.
No matter how you decide to treat your mother this year, we simply hope that you and she both enjoy her special day together. If you’re looking to go a little bigger with your gift this year, don’t hesitate to give us a call and talk about a brand new or used vehicle from right here at Wheaton Toyota on the Trail. We’ve got plenty to choose from!
