If you’re in Edmonton this Saturday, downtown is without a doubt the place to be. Some of us have been calling it “Super Saturday” because there are just so many things happening all day long!
Here’s a list of some of the activities you should check out:
|TEDxEdmonton: Activating Ideas||Citadel Theatre||8:30am – 5:30pm|

Tickets are still available for TEDxEdmonton, so get yours here. You can read my recap of last year’s event here, that should give you a sense of what to expect. DECL’s Pancake Breakfast is a toonie breakfast, so bring your coins! For the City Market, the tasting area of Al Fresco, and for What the Truck?! you’ll need cash, so come prepared.
And since this post is about downtown, here’s an amazing panorama from Hugh Lee (78 images stitched together, taken from the top of the Crowne Plaza Hotel):
Saturday is going to be an amazing day. Let’s hope the weather cooperates, but even if it doesn’t, bring an umbrella and enjoy!
