Summer may seem like a distant memory now that September is here to stay, but it doesn’t mean that we need to shutter away in our homes yet.
While September weekends aren’t as jammed packed as the ones in July or August, there are still festivals, gatherings and a plethora of fundraisers to keep busy.
If worst comes to worst, you can just sit at home and listen to The Beatles non-stop, biding your time until Paul McCartney’s Edmonton show goes on sale.
The Kaleido festival kicks off Friday evening, with music, dance, art and a variety of other activities for the family, it’s sure to bring floods of people to 118 Avenue to experience the area’s revitalization.
Saturday, the biggest What the Truck?! event takes over Churchill Square from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. More than a dozen trucks will fill the square, including newcomers Bully Food Truck, Little Village Food Truck and Yellowbird Cafe Truck.
On Sunday, there are at least three fundraiser runs – Walk Now For Autism Speaks, Run FASD Edmonton and Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope – taking place throughout the city. September is always a big month for fundraising, with Metro’s own Heather McIntyre facing her fears to rappel down Sutton Place for Easter Seals Sept. 4. Rumors have it that there may be some Metro men slipping on their finest heels for Walk a Mile in Her Shoes Tuesday, but we’ll have to wait and see.
