The sights and sounds of Candy Cane Lane instill the spirit of Christmas in all of us. The colorful light displays and unique decorations bring out the magic of the season for young and old alike. Christmas in Edmonton is not complete without a walk down Candy Cane Lane.
Car-Free Candy Cane Lane: For the first-time ever, take in the bright lights and holiday spirit of Candy Cane Lane exclusively on foot or bicycle. Bundle up and stroll down the historic lane, where there will be activities and treats for all. The route will be open to folks walking, rolling, cycling or cross-country skiing with the traditional sleigh rides running as well.
Beyond the fantastical decorations and a heaping dose of holiday spirit, YEG Candy Cane Lane serves as an example of dedication, fortitude, and imagination. In addition to being the second largest contributor to the Edmonton Food Bank, YEG Candy Cane Lane also serves as the unofficial icon for togetherness.
