Who else is ready for Fri-yay to arrive? After a weekend of endless Zoom work meetings, you are probably ready for a break. But the last thing you want to do is spend more time in front of the computer searching for weekend activities. Here are seven incredible things to do in Edmonton that will make the most of it.
We can hardly believe it is already the last weekend of August, and already PSL lattes have arrived at Starbucks.
If you aren't ready to embrace all things fall yet, why not enjoy a taste of summer with a scoop of ice cream?
If you are already a massive fan of Yelo'd Ice Cream, make sure to visit their latest food truck Sosyál. For just a few dollars, you can try one of their delicious Flippino inspired flavours.
But make sure to save room for a rack of ribs. Western Canada Ribfest Tour has been touring Canada, and it finally arrives in Edmonton this weekend.
It will be a drive-thru festival, where you can get some of the best BBQ you ever tasted without leaving your vehicle.
We hope you have a fantastic time relaxing in the sunshine with your days off.
