Let the countdown to the Friday night begin. The workweek is nearly over, and if you are like us, you've got relaxing on your mind. Instead of spending your time off in your pyjamas, you should make the most of all this sunshine. To help you start planning, here are things to do in Edmonton this weekend from Friday, August 7 to Sunday, August 9.
If you lack air conditioning, we have a delicious way for you to beat the heat. You can stop by Kind Ice Cream to pick up a to-go ice cream cone or personal size pints.
There are so many outdoor activities you need to try too. August means corn mazes are ready, and there is colossal one just a short drive away.
The Edmonton Corn Maze is a fun spot to challenge your BFF and see who can escape first. Get ready for a real challenge, as you explore 5-kilometres of pathways that twist around the garden.
Or for all you gamers, head out to Edmonton's Rainbow Road. It looks like the famous area in Mario Kart and makes for a colourful spot to take a selfie.
It is time to start planning what to do. We hope your days off are extraordinary.
