This year, YEG Candy Cane Lane will host a car-free night to allow attendees to experience one of Edmonton’s most anticipated Christmas events in a whole new way.

“December 12 is car-free! Experience the magic from a horse drawn sleigh…tickets will be available soon,” said @YEGCC, Candy Cane lane’s official Twitter account.

On opening night on December 12, from 6 to 9 pm, you can enjoy the Christmas lights and festive cheer on foot or bike for the first time ever.

The route will be open to folks walking, rolling, cycling, or cross-country skiing with the traditional sleigh rides running as well. All other nights will be open to motor vehicles, with sleigh ride tickets to be announced soon.

The event takes place in the Crestwood community, with entire neighbourhoods decorating the exterior of their homes in celebration of the holiday season.

YEG Candy Cane Lane is in support of the Edmonton Food Bank, with more than 360,000 kilograms of food being donated over the last two decades, and with an average of 25,000 kilograms of food being donated per year.

According to their website, sleigh rides are $17 (plus service charge) per passenger. Infants under 24 months and sitting on a lap are free. Sleigh rides will leave from, and return to, St Andrew’s United Church.

Whether on foot, in a car, or in a sleigh, YEG Candy Cane Lane is a perfect Christmas event to commemorate the season and get in the giving spirit in support of the Edmonton Food Bank.

Stay tuned to the YEG Candy Cane Lane Twitter for announcements on tickets.
