The City of Edmonton Announced “Free Admission Day” for September 25th

The City of Edmonton presents a celebration of recreation. Sunday, September 25, 2016.

EDMONTON — The City of Edmonton is rewarding Edmontonians for ongoing support of local attractions, recreation centres and other facilities. They are doing so by running “Free Admission Day 2016” on Sunday, September 25th from 10:00 AM until 6:00 PM.

There is no shortage of attractions to attend on the upcoming weekend. There are just shy of twenty businesses taking part in providing Edmontonians with a free day.

The businesses taking part are perfect for everyone. Families and individuals alike, can explore the city they live in, without having to pay to get in and enjoy the many attractions they have to offer.

This is a once a year experience that is especially perfect for families that are struggling with money issues during this downturn in Alberta’s economy.

The City writes:

Those that decide to attend Free Admission Day at either the Edmonton Valley Zoo, Fort Edmonton Park, or The Meadows Community Recreation centre, please note that these three locations will be accepting donations of non-perishable food items to help our fellow neighbours.
