Edmonton’s Candy Cane Lane is visited by hundreds of thousands of visitors every holiday season! The sights and sounds of Candy Cane Lane instill the spirit of the season in all of us. The colourful light displays and unique decorations bring out the magic of the holidays for young and old alike. Candy Cane Lane runs along 148 Street from 92 Avenue to 100 Avenue.
Candy Cane lane was started over 40 years ago by a small group of residents in Crestwood Community. As with most things it started off small with a few houses putting up some impressive light displays. The spirit spread to other residents up and down 148 street from 100 avenue to 92 avenue where today more than 10 city blocks are now officially considered Candy Cane Lane. It is all done on a volunteer basis and there is no commercial or municipal sponsorship of any kind. With so many visitors coming to enjoy the sights, Candy Cane Lane decided to show their Christmas spirit and ask visitors to bring non perishable food items for the Edmonton Food Bank. Kids can bring their letters to Santa and drop it off in the Canada Post Mailbox placed specially on the Lane for North Pole letters!
The Lane is best enjoyed by walking, so bundle up and bring some hot cocoa in a thermos! You can drive through, but it gets very congested. Another great way to experience the Lane is by horse-drawn sleigh rides which can be booked online.
Free for all to attend
