Alberta Legislature Lookbook: Christmas

edmonton, lookbook, alberta legislature, christmas

It’s the most magical time of the year to visit the Alberta Legislature! The grounds and building are festively decorated during each holiday season, and this year the atmosphere is made complete by the addition of Christmas music playing over the sounds system (which I hadn’t noticed in previous years). Here’s a look at what you’ll see during an evening walk in the area (highly recommended!).

The inside of the Legislature makes for a nice visit as well. Multiple choirs and other musical ensembles have put on noon hour and evening shows for the past 30+ years that are open for free to the public. Keep it on your radar for next year if you want to hear some holiday tunes (the programming this year finished on December 23).

The often overlooked Federal Building on the north side of the Leg Grounds is worth a stop for their gift shop called “Alberta Branded”. It’s stocked with all sorts of art made by Albertans from across the province.

Merry Christmas and thank you to everyone out there who helped support me in my photographic endeavours this year, which included setting up my own Etsy shop!

For some more festive photos, have a look at my Festival of Trees Lookbook here.

YEG Lookbook: November

The snow is here to stay in Edmonton with what can only be colder weather to come. On the bright side, the city is looking like a gorgeous and serene winter wonderland! Here’s your look back at this month in #yeg from locations primarily spanning Capilano, Louise McKinney Park, Hawrelak Park, and other locations along the River Valley:

To see more of this month’s fall freeze along the North Saskatchewan River, see this lookbook.

With the river now frozen over, you can be sure that winter is well on its way! Here’s a look back at this year’s fall freeze as seen from locations in Forest Heights, Capilano, Louise McKinney Park, and central Edmonton on or near the High Level Bridge:
