8 Super Fun Things To Do In Edmonton This Weekend, September 25 - 27

If you're not pumped about the weekend, you're doing something wrong. Planning for the weekend is half of the fun throughout the week. Thankfully, there are tons of things to do in Edmonton between Friday, September 25, and Sunday, September 27, so feel free to get those hopes up high. 

Edmonton's fall weather is still mild and manageable as far as we can tell. We're having a hard time believing it, too. 

Editor's Choice: North America's First Multi-Level Go-Kart Track Is Finally Open At West Edmonton Mall

When Mother Nature gives us lemons, you can rest assured we're going to make some lemonade. 

Because pretty soon, the first snow is going to hit, and you're going to want to spend the entirety of the weekend being the indoor cat that you are. 

Therefore, right now is the perfect time to leave your house and explore the city.

Just close your eyes and imagine the crisp air, the lovely foliage, the smell of PSL. If that doesn't tempt you, you might not be a fall person at all. 

From spooky haunted houses to trying out a new go-kart track, there's plenty to do in Edmonton this coming weekend.

If you're hoping to save some bucks, you can even opt to just get outside and go on a pleasant walk in your neighbourhood. 

Whatever it may be, just know that Edmonton is packed with activities and you might be missing out big-time if you don't give a single item a go.
