Every city has its own beloved holiday traditions. The ones that manage to bring back feelings of nostalgia—successfully getting everyone into the holiday spirit. And for many of us in Edmonton, that holiday tradition comes in the form of Candy Cane Lane.
Candy Cane Lane is everything you want Christmas to be, from the enchanting light displays and decorations, to its true representation of the “season of giving”--as the entire event is run on a volunteer basis, asking its visitors to bring donations for the Edmonton Food Bank.
This highly cherished Christmas event in Edmonton can be enjoyed right now, since it opened up on December 9th and will run until January 1st. It’s best enjoyed on foot (as the streets can get really congested with vehicles during the season) and with a hot cup of cocoa! You also have the option to book a sleigh ride down this street in advance—in case you wanted to be even MORE festive! ?
So bundle up in your comfiest and warmest winter apparel, and head out to visit Candy Cane Lane on 148 Street (between 100 Ave and 92 Ave). The magic of the season awaits you!
