Plan for a remaining long weekends this summer
As summer marches on, there is still plenty to look forward to doing or seeing and plenty of opportunities to get away with the family or some friends on a long weekend. The next long weekend we have to look forward to is Heritage Day on Aug. 1. At the end of that week, the annual Edmonton Airshow gets underway. Following those, the end of the summer season will be upon us with Labour Day on Sept. 5. Don Wheaton is committed to making sure everyone has a fun and, more importantly, safe summer. Please leave a comment below if you think we left something out.
What can we do on Heritage Day?
[wrc_column grid=”2″ width=”1″ type=”start”][/wrc_column][wrc_column grid=”2″ width=”1″ type=”end”]The annual Servus Heritage Festival kicks off on July 30 and runs through Aug. 1. Organizers from the Edmonton Heritage Festival Association are committed to promoting awareness and understanding of the wonderfully diverse community that inhabits Edmonton and the surrounding area. More than 85 cultures from 67 countries will be represented at this year’s Heritage Festival. Even better, according to the group’s website, better than 1.5 million kilograms of food have been donated to the Food Bank.[/wrc_column]
What can I see at the 2016 Edmonton Airshow?
[wrc_column grid=”2″ width=”1″ type=”start”][/wrc_column][wrc_column grid=”2″ width=”1″ type=”end”]If you’re a fan of aviation or just like to see loud things go fast, any of the performance at the 2016 Edmonton Airshow will be right up your alley. Taking place on August 5 and 6 at Villeneuve Airport outside of Edmonton, spectators can see an awesome display of military and civilian aircraft. There will be a number of World War II warbirds on display in period-correct livery. Several static displays and a family-friendly area are also available. This is a can’t miss activity this summer.[/wrc_column]
Where can we go on Labour Day weekend?
[wrc_column grid=”2″ width=”1″ type=”start”][/wrc_column][wrc_column grid=”2″ width=”1″ type=”end”]As a province, Alberta is blessed with some of the most naturally beautiful locations in the world. At the top of these scenic locations is Banff National Park. Memories are built on road trips and the 400-plus kilometers from Edmonton to Banff National Park should make a lot of them. Families and groups can enter the park for the day for less than $20. Once inside there are number of things for people to do from camping and hiking to fishing. This is really a place to unwind and relax on the unofficial last weekend of summer.[/wrc_column]
