what’s better than a couple of floats and some street performances? Well, usually we’d say nothing – but when there are sheep involved… the answer has GOT to be ‘sheep parade!’ This Monday, head to the NE to bid Fort Saskachewans hardworking woolly friends goodbye – it’s going to be sbaaaactacular.

That’s right, the Edmonton Corn Maze is back for the season! Head down and quite literally lose yourself in acres upon acres of corn. Sounds like a Stephen King novel, but we assure you, it’s much more fun than that.

Last chance! TELUS World of Science and Fort Edmonton Park have teamed up to offer a 2-for-1 deal on general admissions, but you’re running out of time to take advantage of it!
