Edmonton Notes for 11/15/2008 – Holiday Light Up! Edition - Blog
Earlier this evening, Sharon and I went to check out the Christmas on the Square Holiday Light Up! event. Mayor Mandel and Santa were on hand to help light up the largest Christmas tree we've ever had in Edmonton – 83 feet tall, with over 8000 energy efficient lights on it! BrightNights was also launched, and there were choirs, free wagon rides, and a tented version of the 104th Street City Market. Great weather today meant that Churchill Square was absolutely packed! You can see more photos and video here. The neat thing about the fireworks is that they were timed to the music! Here are some Edmonton-related things I found interesting this week: At Techvibes, I wrote about a new competition for local entrepreneurs being run by NAIT. I also profiled local firm Nirix Technology. Sharon and some other local food bloggers were featured in the Bistro section of the Edmonton Journal this week! Congrats to all!
