Things to do in Edmonton this Thanksgiving Weekend – October 9-11, 2020

The weather is gorgeous and we’re excited for a long weekend here in Edmonton to spend time with the kids. Now that we’re in the groove of back to school and home education, we can really look forward to those relaxing weekends. Long walks, fall leaves, halloween preparation and getting outside while we can – that’s what we’ve got to look explore to this weekend in Edmonton.

Friday

Get Free admission for children to the University of Alberta Botanic Garden until October 12, to celebrate the last of the fall season. Bring the kids to explore the gorgeous grounds and gardens, and see the space before the snow falls, and the gardens close for the year.
