Things to do in Edmonton this Weekend
Kids Fringe (All Weekend)
The Fringe Festival is here (August 15-25) and if you’ve got children who might be a bit too young, or short attention spanned, to take in a show, that doesn’t mean you have to skip it. The Fringe Festival is actually a great way to take in some budget friendly fun before summer comes to an end – join Little Kickers this year at our training zone. Take in a class and meet our Mascot Lenny!
See: Wonder Park at the Drive In
Parking for the drive in movie opens at 5pm, and kids activities in the kids zone take place between 6-9 pm. Admission is only $10/car and there is usually a kids zone with additional entertainment, so bring a little bit of cash to entertain the kids.
