Glow Around the World
Edmonton is typically cold during the Christmas season so what better way to enjoy a display of million lights than indoors at the Expo Centre. Glow Around the World features light gardens, a vendor market, visits with Santa, indoor playground, a licensed bar with seasonal beverages and live music.
