May long weekend has come and gone. Don’t get bogged down with those post-long weekend blues, instead, why not celebrate! After all, it’s time for the unofficial kickoff to Alberta summers. Alberta Honda’s prepping for their big summer car show, Premier, at the end of June, and until then, we recognize that you’ll need something to do leading up to it.
With that, if you don’t already have plans, here are a few things to keep you busy for this weekend.
1) Go for a Swim
May long weekend also brought with it the opening weekend of many local outdoor swimming pools. Two Edmonton pools will be open starting May Long weekend, Fred Broadstock, located in the west end (15720 105 Avenue), and Queen Elizabeth pool, located in the downtown area at the Kinsmen Sports Park (9170 Walterdale Hill NW). The weather looks like it’s going to be plenty hot so if you can’t make it out to the lake, there’s no better replacement then our local swimming holes!
2) A day in the Park
Edmonton is home to some amazing outdoor parks. Whether it be Hawrelak, with its gorgeous grounds, and ample space, Rundle Park, with its versatility and unique Disc Golf course, or Emily Murphy Park, with its proximity to the North Saskatchewan River and overall camping feel, the City parks offer a multitude of things to do and places to hang out with the family. This long weekend also marks the opening weekend of Fort Edmonton Park, which has endless activities and fun things to do for all ages.
3) Go Esks Go!
Its football season time in Edmonton. After getting their preseason off on the right foot with a big win against the Saskatchewan Roughriders. This Sunday, June 3rd, from 1pm to 3pm, The Esks want you to come celebrate with them at the Edmonton Eskimo Fan Day! There will be a full team autograph session, face painting, and a variety of kids activities. Come support the home team and celebrate the beginning of the Edmonton Football season!
