How festive! Old Strathcona will be treating shoppers to a horse drawn sleigh ride on Saturdays leading up to Christmas! Though they aren't reindeer, you'll feel a bit like Santa when you're checking off your list in your sleigh.
The sleigh rides will have multiple stops along the route, so you'll be able to hit all the shops you need. Adults pay $2 and children pay $1, with proceeds going towards Parkinsons Alberta.
Enjoy free parking on weekends (until Christmas) at South Scona Lot - across from The Keg on 105 Street!
If that isn't lovely enough, you can also enter to win a $1000 shopping spree! Starting tomorrow, you can enter daily via their facebook page until December 19th.
Here are a few of our favourite Old Strathcona shops we've featured on City and Dale:
- Vivid Print (10342 Whyte Avenue) - for those Edmonton and design lovers
- The Briefing Room (10151 Whyte Avenue) and Barber Ha (10011 Whyte Avenue) - for all the men on your list
