Let the lights twinkle and the sleigh bells jingle! This holiday season, you’ll find a variety of family-friendly events in the Greater Edmonton Area. From stunning illuminated displays to quiet winter walks, there’s something for everyone. Along with making wonderful holiday memories, you’ll also be helping local charities and worthwhile initiatives.
Edmonton’s winter is cold and snowy, which means there are loads of fun activities that you can enjoy! With ice comes sliding, with snow comes sculpting, and with our long nights comes lots of opportunities to take in the lights, both natural and artificial.
As exciting as it can be to see snow banks melt away in the spring, it can be equally nerve racking if your home isn’t well protected.

The winter months can do a number on your home’s heating bill. As you crank up your furnace to keep yourself comfy and cozy, snow and ice builds up around your house and the chill tries to sneak inside.

As the cold and snowy weather continues into January, it’s easy to want to burrow away at home while wearing your coziest clothes. That might be fun for a day or two, but you’ll soon catch a case of cabin fever — or at least the kids will.
Winter can be the perfect time to build memories with your children. Get out there, get active, and have some fun enjoying these winter activities with your family.
