EDMONTON, AB – The silly, the scary and the four-legged will be on display at the Midway and the Edmonton EXPO Centre for the 2016 K-Days running July 22-31. Music fans can experience concerts with unique VIP offerings, and the Kinsmen Lottery returns to with turbo-powered prizes.
Premier’s K-Days Breakfast: The annual K-Days Premier’s Breakfast will launch a day early this year. Regularly hosted on the day before K-Days opens, this year the breakfast will be served on July 20, two days before K-Days begins. Everyone is invited to the south grounds of the Alberta Legislature to enjoy free pancakes, eggs, and sausage from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.
Kinsmen Lottery: The Kinsmen Club of Edmonton has served the community’s greatest needs for 90 years, and the much-loved lottery is back at K-Days. This year visitors can expect ramped-up prizes. A 2016 Dodge Ram Sport Crew Cab 1500 4×4 (retailed at $56,235) and a 2016 Dodge Challenger R/T (retailed at $42,285) will be up for grabs for two lucky winners. Tickets will be available on-site at the cost of one ticket for $10, three tickets for $20 and 12 tickets for $40.
The Canine Stars: The dog days of summer are back. 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.
