Luminaria to return to Edmonton for another year

November 14, 2017 by  

The holiday season can sometimes be a stressful time of the year, and in Edmonton, those who feel like they could use a break are invited to visit a tranquil and calm area.

Early this December, the Kurimoto Japanese Garden will be opening its gates for a special event. Luminaria will see members of the public enjoying moonlit strolls through the gardens as they enjoy the twinkling lights. Mugs of hot apple cider will be available, and live entertainment will be provided by wandering a capella singers.

The little ones who come to Luminaria will be able to add their wishes to the Wish Upon a Star Tree. They can also navigate through the Snowlight Maze, and enjoy the thousands of candles that will be lighting up the night.

To help take the chill off, a bonfire will be lit and guess can enjoy relaxing with their friends and families. There will be ice sculptures created by local artisans, and those who wish to honour the memory of loved ones no longer with them are invited to light a candle for them in Memory Lane. Sign printing services for an occasion like this can be supplied by an area printing company.

Luminaria will be held in the University of Alberta Botanic Garden on December 1 to 3. Those who are interested in coming out are required to register beforehand. More details about the festivities can be found on the Explore Edmonton website.
