What To Do This May Long Weekend In Edmonton With Kids | May 15 – 18

Hooray ! It’s the May long weekend and, in my mind, the reliable start to spring. Time to put away the winter gear and pull out the sunscreen.

It’s also marks the start of the outdoor farmers market season. 124 street Grand Market opens on Thursday evening and 104 street City Market on Saturday. Earth’s General Store on 104 street is offering 15% off to celebrate the market’s opening.

Telus World of Science’s highly anticipated Dinosaurs Unearthed exhibit also opens on Saturday. It features 7 life-size, moving, roaring dinosaurs plus hands on activities. Go on Saturday and kids 12 & under receive a stuffy dinosaur (while supplies last). Also you can create your own fossil casts just like paleontologists.

Continuing on the theme of openings. Fort Edmonton Park also opens for season on Saturday. New this year, they’ve bundled all attraction costs into one all-inclusive price. The price is higher but now you and your kids can enjoy all the ol’time rides without having to buy extra tickets.  There will be additional opening day activities but the train will not be running due to track replacement. Take street cars, horse-drawn wagons or bring a stroller to help get around.

On Monday, Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village celebrates their season opening with their annual Celebration of Dance. Go early for a pancake breakfast. Enjoy Ukrainian dancing. See the unveiling of five newly restored historic buildings. Take a wagon rides while exploring the historic village.

The FIFA Women's World Cup Trophy Tour comes to West Edmonton Mall this weekend. Get your picture taken with the cup, play a little foosball and take your best shot. Do you have your tix for the games in June & July?

This weekend we’re also looking forward to riding bikes, playing outside, planting the garden and exploring our city.

See you out and about,
