Kid-Friendly Theatre: When Giant Babies Attack

Everything is perfect in the sleepy little town of Beetville except for one thing…The only thing to eat is, well, beets: beet pie, beet pizza, even beet McNuggets. Clementine and Susanna hate beets but their baby brother eats so many that he grows and grows until his head pops through the roof and into the clouds. Things only get worse as he begins a terrifying rampage through the city streets. They’ll be grounded for a month if their mom finds out what happens…WHEN GIANT BABIES ATTACK!

First on the Ice Party

Grab your skates, helmets, and hockey sticks and meet us at Rosslyn Rink for an afternoon of skating games, snacks, and possibly a game of shinny against some Oilers Alumni!! This amazing event is hosted by the Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues – EFCL and Rosslyn Community League and is FREE to all families.

Free Snow Tubing at Tawatinaw Valley

Every Sunday, there’s free tubing at Tawatinaw Valley – since you can tube with the kids as young as two years old, it’s a great place to get out on the hill and it’s just an hour outside of Edmonton!
