Edmonton Makes the List...Again & Again!

As Edmonton continues to grow in all facets, the world takes note! By Emil Tiedemann Every other week it seems as though there's yet another praise-worthy list Edmonton has popped up on, affirming our humble hometown's advancements in everything from food to finances. There's been so much love for #yeg over the last few years alone actually that it's hard to keep up with it all, and so I've decided to save y'all the time and effort by listing the lists right here in one spot!    The world shows love for #yeg!

I mean, it's all around us. It's Ice District and Rogers Place. It's the new Royal Alberta Muse

Edmonton's Ice Castle 2018!

Edmonton's Ice Castle 2018! By Emil Tiedemann For the third year in a row, Edmonton's Hawrelak Park looks as if Elsa from Disney's Frozen is AirBnB'ing there, as the Ice Castle is once again here for the winter!  The stunning ice fortress will stay until the weather permits, so make sure you grab your tickets (we highly recommend you purchase them online HERE ), wear some comfy boots, and charge up your iPhone to snap some sweet #yegwinter pics!  Tickets for the Ice Castle range from $9.95 to $20, depending on your age, the day you visit, and where you buy them. It will be open 4PM-9PM on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday (closed on Tuesdays), 4PM-10PM on Friday, 11Am-10PM on Saturday, and from 12PM-8PM on Sunday.  There is plenty of parking at the Park (first come first serve), and the Park itself closes at 11PM. Here are some pics I snapped of this year's fantabulous Ice Castle!
