The LUX To-Do List: July

Posted: Jul 05 2016 | Author: Marielle T

Ice cream, sandals, tan lines are certainly at the top of our 'why we love summer' list but honestly, that's a list that never ceases to grow.

If you happen to find yourself in Edmonton all summer, there's so many delightful things to get your hands on. The longer days are calling your name, so let's make the most of these hot summer nights! 
 

 

Wet & Wild: 'Slide the City' is back for another bigger and better year. They bring a new way to cool off by turning Victoria Park Road into a massive waterslide. Be sure to register in advance so you don't miss out on this larger than life slip'n'slide.  Find out more here
 
Sounds of Summer: Enjoy the sweet sounds of Kathleen Edwards, Lord Huron and the Strumbellas under the open night sky down at Intersellar Rodeo. Find out more here.  

Inner Child: Embrace your carefree days of youth and give into K Days and the Metro Cinema's All-You-Can-Eat-Cereal Party for a sugar packed fun filled day. Summer only comes once a year- indulge a little! 
 
Ready Set Eat: Get your fill of the local food scene with not one, but two classic Edmonton food festivals. Sample some of YEG's best restaurants at Taste of Edmonton and if you're still hungry, take on the world at Heritage Days
 
Show Your Colors: Get in a run while working on your color (quite literally) with the "Color Me Rad' run on July 9th. Find out more information here.   

Whyte Hot Summer: All the fun of Ice on Whyte without any of the frostbite, Sand on Whyte is a annual Sand Castle festival taking place as part of the Whyte Ave Art Walk. Find out more here.  

See the Sights: Be your own docent and take some of the amazing public art around Edmonton during these warmer months. Even long time Edmonton locals will be impressed by all the art they've been missing. Find the full collection and map out your custom art tour here

Shop Local: Join us on Thursday July 7 for a Pop-Up at Poppy Barley with Nicole Bridger and So Pretty Cara Cotter jewelry (our lovely neighbour whose space was featured in the Spring style guide). Find out all the details here
