If you aren’t sure, check out some of the awesome things Edmonton is doing to celebrate! There are enough activities going on for you to plan an entire day filled with fun activities!

1. Visit the High Level Bridge

At 11pm they will light up the bridge that is covered in over 50,000 lights and play a variety of Edmonton music. Last year the lights were synchronized to the national anthem with music done by the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra! Check it out to see what they’ll do this year!
