Things to do in Edmonton this Weekend with Kids | November 20-22

It’s going to be a gorgeous snow-filled weekend, and there has never been a better forecast to get outside, and enjoy the winter weather. Find things to do in Edmonton this weekend, with your family.

Friday

Magic of Lights Opens for the Season

Magic of Lights™ is a unique and dazzling drive-through holiday lights experience to celebrate the season. Pile everyone into the car and experience Magic of Lights from the safety and comfort of your own car as you wind through the sparkling path. At every turn, the magical route is overflowing with spectacular light displays that bring your favorite holiday themes and characters to life. Bring a thermos of hot cocoa, and wear pajamas to make the experience even more special.

Shop for a Local Senior

Every year, as part of London Drugs’ Stocking Stuffers for Seniors campaign, families can shop from a tag found at your local London Drugs store. On the tag is the name of a senior and a few items from their Wishlist. Our kids love choosing names from the tree every year, and shopping for the perfect gift. We like to include hand written letters and cards to make it even more special. Find the tree at your local store, and drop off the bag of goodies before December 16, 2020.

Saturday

Take a Virtual Cooking Class

Join guest presenter and Masterchef Alumnus Mai Nguyen and learn how to make your own Jamaican Beef Patties, together with a Carrot Ginger Vinaigrette and Jamaican Steamed Cabbage. Your class will begin with making the pastry. Then while your pastry rests you’ll prepare your beef filling. And once your patties are made and in the oven, Mai will teach you how to make Jamaican Steamed Cabbage, a side dish of Green Cabbage with Bell Peppers and Scotch Bonnets, as well as a Carrot Ginger Vinaigrette to add some zing to your Patties.

Roast S’mores at the Greenhouse

See ‘HOOK’ at Metro Cinema

When his young children are abducted by his old nemesis, Capt. Hook, middle-aged lawyer Peter Banning returns to his magical origins as Peter Pan. Peter must revisit a foggy past in which he abandoned Neverland for family life, leaving Tinkerbell and the Lost Boys to fend for themselves. Given their bitterness toward Peter for growing up, and their allegiance to their new leader, Rufio, the old gang may not be happy to see him.

Go Tubing at Edmonton Ski Club 

Have you heard? There’s a brand new tubing Hill at Edmonton Ski Club. Children 4+ can tube down the hill on their own (helmets required), so it’s a great option for local families. Tickets start at $15 for the timed sessions, and there’s a magic carpet to drag you back up the hill!
