Looking for some free items to reduce the cost of hanging out in Edmonton? Here are some free Edmonton Events that you can mark on the calender to check out – without breaking the bank. Which of these are your favorite?
Tour the Art Gallery for FREE
Yes, you heard me right. Sign up the kids for the Kids Bowl FREE Program and they can get two free games of bowling at participating lanes in Edmonton, every single day. This would be a great time to come in, enjoy some air conditioning and avoid going crazy on those rainy days. Plus, with kids, bowling takes forever – so you can have some time to catch up on your latest book while they bowl. Win/Win. Anyone want to join us for water fights in Sherwood Park?
Check out the City of Edmonton website to find the spray decks in your local area and head there for the afternoon to cool off. Find a shady spot to avoid getting too warm and you will likely have to get there early to get a great spot. One of my favorites is the one in Sherwood Park at Clover Bar (behind Superstore) and runner up is the one at the Italian Center, downtown. There is lots of shade, and the Italian Center is right there, for lunch.
