Just the other day I was chatting with my Grandma and we were reminiscing all the times we went to K-Days as a family when I was growing up (every year!) and all the fun we had when we were there. Luckily K-Days is still around and now I have the opportunity to create those lasting memories with my little ones.
If you haven’t been to K-Days before (or in a long time) don’t fret; I’ve outlined the main things to do at K-Days this year and we have an amazing giveaway below.
Fair rides & Fair Food
K-Days isn’t your typical Fair, they have a wide variety of rides – for all ages! – and they’ve even added a couple new rides this year! And while yes, you can get the good ol’ corn dogs, elephant ears and candy apples they also offer other delightful and creative food items, such as: Duck Confit Poutine, Nutella Glazed Mini Donuts, Rainbow Grilled Cheese and so much more!
Kids Town is a special place for the little ones in your life, they can explore a miniature town complete with opportunities to build structures at the Construction Zone, see a medial display at the Medical Centre, learn about different musical instruments at the Music Hall or join a scavenger hunt at the Library. There will be performances in Kids Town every day that include Kidomo, Bob the Builder, Thomas and Friends and Dora the Explorer. Children’s musician Will Stroet as well as magician Sheldon Casavant will also join in on the fun to entertain the youngsters. Find all the details here.
The Martin Deerline Farm gives patrons an opportunity to experience the aspects of a working farm, including: live animals, dummy roping, potato planting, cow milking and more!
The Canine Stars
The Canine Stars are an impressive team of four-legged professional athletes who have all been rescued or adopted from shelters. These canines bring action and athleticism to the midway with air stunts, frisbee freestyle, high jumping, agility, flyball racing and dock diving.
Music & Entertainment
This year K-Days is pleased to present 20 Headliners on two stages (North and TD South); you can find the full schedule & line-up here. There is also live entertainment for the little ones in the Kids Town.
If you have been wondering what a Zombie Outbreak would look like, wonder no more! Check out Zombie Outbreak in the Feature Pavilion in Hall B from July 29-31 in the Edmonton EXPO Centre. Fend off the undead, and watch your back for the other survivors in the ultimate zombie experience that takes you beyond TV and comics and straight into reality (participants must be 16 years or older).
The Peking Acrobats bring awe-inspiring artistry and athleticism to a new level as they push human ability to its limit. These graceful and agile athletes perform incredible balancing acts, gymnastic feats, contortions, trick-cycling and even more acts that you have to see to believe.
