What to do for 2016 Canada Day in Edmonton AB
Next year is our 150th anniversary as a nation, and we imagine it’s going to be a pretty massive party, but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate Canada’s 149th birthday right here and now. If you’re wondering what to do for 2016 Canada Day in Edmonton AB next week, then we’ve got a few great ideas for you to consider checking out. Canada Day is one of our favorite holidays of the year, and we cannot wait for the fun-filled weekend and, of course, fireworks.
As with every year, the Alberta Legislature building will offer a ton of activities including live music, dancing and much more. With a pancake breakfast from 7:00 to 10:00 a.m., a road race on the South Grounds at the same time, celebrate cake later in the morning or even attend a citizenship ceremony in the band shell, there are plenty of things to do to celebrate our great country at the Legislature.
If you’re looking for true family-friendly fun for the whole gang, then you should probably celebrate Canada Day at City Hall. With tons of activities like airbrush tattoos, balloon fairies and chess tournaments plus a multitude of performances like yellow ribbon dancers, Japanese Drums and even a performance by Tea Gonzales, there is something fun to do from noon to 4:00 p.m. for everyone in the family.
And of course, to cap off the celebrations, the Canada Day Fireworks Finale will take place at 11:00 p.m. The fireworks display will occur over the city’s river valley parks and the North Saskatchewan River. There are plenty of places around town to view the display, including parks like Victoria, Ezio Faraone, Government House and the Edmonton Ballpark, just make sure not to go to Kinsmen Park. Find a place to post up early and enjoy the whole show, we personally cannot wait!
