Don't know if anyone else was Downtown last night but it was pretty hopping. Between Al Fresco 104 Street (during the day), PrideFest, Garth Brooks fans and multiple grads, it was busy everywhere.
Certain amount of visible disorder that needs to be addressed, but when it's busy no one seems to really mind.
Agreed. Very busy and nice to see. It's too bad the city hall water fountains/wading pool get completely cut off when there are events like Taste of Edmonton last year and Pridefest this year. The pools were so busy but you couldn't see it and if you were at the pool you couldn't see the huge crowd at Churchill Square. If it could somehow be opened up without all the vendors set up in front of it and more relocated to the sides I think it would create a better scene.
Ice District was pretty quiet. Fairly steady stream of people walking along 102 Avenue corridor because of the 104 st event at the same time as Churchill.
It was actually nice running along River Valley Road Saturday morning with no cars, too, as it was closed for the cycling event.
What a beautiful weekend. Seriously, when looking at our river valley on days like this, not many cities can compare to this level of natural beauty in the heart. River valley is amazing right now.
