Make those last few weeks of winter count before we welcome spring with open arms!
PARKSHOW YEG 2017 presented by Londonderry
Life is too short to wear boring clothes… but what can be done about it? Lucky for you, PARKSHOW YEG 2017 presented by Londonderry is an emerging fashion show featuring some of Canada’s premier up-and-coming fashion designers. You’ll find inspiration for your next special-event outfit and everyday look. Check out Canadian designs by Camp Brand Goods, Suka Clothing, Lennard Taylor, Gypsy Soul, and local favs Okakie and Workhall.
Live music, drinks and… science? There’s never been a more perfect combination. Science is served on the rocks at this 18+ event at the Telus World of Science. Each Dark Matters evening has a different theme, and this time it's all about projectiles. Four words: Nerf gun shooting range.
Live Action Escape Games
What's a live action escape game, you ask? In a nutshell, you're locked in a room with a group of your friends with a series of games and logic puzzles to solve in order to escape. Clock is ticking though. You've only got 45 minutes to break out of the room! Each business has a few rooms to play, but they are so fun you'll want to do them all.
Hockey... it's the most Edmonton thing you can do. Check out the Edmonton Oilers in their shiny new barn at Rogers Place. Hockey hair presented live in HD, what more could you ask for? Grab your blue and orange and get to the arena, and make sure to stop in at Mercer, Rostizado or Baijiu for some pre (or post) game grub.
11 home games in March
