Winter has arrived full-force! Are you looking for free or low-cost options to enjoy over the winter months? Take a look at the list from Explore Edmonton HERE. There are indoor and outdoor options to do on your own or with friends and family. Skating, tobogganing, walking the river valley, enjoying an art gallery or visiting a second-hand bookstore are all fun ways to make good memories till the snow melts!

Christmas lights are up around town! Candy Cane Lane (on 148 St from 92nd to 99th avenue) officially opens December 9, and will be open for vehicles and pedestrian traffic until New Year’s Day. This year they are hosting three “no vehicle” evenings on December 10, 17 and 23, with the area open to pedestrian traffic only. Please remember a food bank donation!

December offers many opportunities for generousity and sharing with those under financial strain and other limitations in our city. Please consider how you are already supporting those in need, and how you might offer support in this season. HOPE Mission ( , The Mustard Seed ( , the Food Bank ( and other agencies are all working hard to look after the needs of many at this time and throughout the year. No gift is too small, and all donations are put to good use.
