Symphony Under the Sky
The magnificent Symphony Under the Sky keeps up its fantastic summer concert series with a performance each night over Labour Day Long Weekend. On Thursday night, you can hear the wondrous tunes of The Nat King Cole Songbook, then journey back to the classical era with a bit of Tchaikovsky, Wagner & Bruch on Friday, before spending A Night in Hollywood on Saturday and wrapping everything up with the Alberta Rising afternoon performance. All of these wonderful performance takes place at the Heritage Amphitheatre in Hawrelak Park at 7:00 p.m. – except Sunday’s concert, which takes place at 2:00 p.m.
If you’re from out of town and just visiting Edmonton over the long weekend, or even if it’s just been a while since you got out and explored your hometown, there are a ton of different tours you can go on around the city. You can hop on a fancy Segway and take a guided adventure, grab a seat on one of the multiple bus tours that take you around different parts of the town or, if you’re feeling really adventurous, you can even go on a 4-day bicycle tour through the Canadian Rockies.
Whatever you decide to do with your Labour Day Long Weekend, we simply hope you get a chance to relax and enjoy the time off. Happy Labour Day from everyone here in the Wheaton family!
