Candy Cane Lane is a 40 year plus tradition in the city of Edmonton. Thousands of people take to the streets of the west end neighbourhood along 148 Street during the three week period it is available. Several homes along this stretch of about eight blocks are lit up in festive finery. One even had a nativity sculpted out of ice this year. It is best to walk the route for best visibility as the street becomes rather congested with vehicles.
We went on a Tuesday evening and it was close to -20 Celsius that night which didn't deter the visitors. All that is required for admission is a food bank donation for which there are several drop boxes available along the route.
Here are some highlights of this year's showing.
