Fall activities Edmonton AB
There are few things in life that get us more excited than the crisp, fresh season of Fall. It is full of warm drinks, beautiful sunrises, crisp air and loads of fun activities. For example, it is the perfect time for apple picking, pumpkin carving, baking, sipping cider, going for bike rides, hiking, and just about anything else you could want to do. (Heck, it’s even the perfect time to buy a new car because we’re clearing out our inventory to make room for 2015 models!)
We know there aren’t enough weekends in the year to pack all of the activities in that take place in Edmonton AB, so we came up with a list of the best Fall activities Edmonton AB for you and your family. We want you to stay happy and healthy this holiday season, so make sure to bundle up if necessary!Alberta Culture Days
