Tour Edmonton Outdoor Activities & Attractions With Bigfoot

Sasquatch Gets Friendly With Edmonton Locals, Explores Popular Edmonton Attractions in New Video Released by Edmonton Tourism

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Dec. 1, 2010) -

Editors Note: There is a video associated with this Press Release.

With an exceptional combination of Edmonton outdoor activities and cultural attractions, it's not hard to see why even Bigfoot would come down the mountain to see all the city has to offer.

The new Edmonton video is the brainchild of local students who came together to tell the story of their city. It's developed in partnership with Edmonton Economic Development Corporation (which includes Edmonton Tourism), Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) and Victoria School of the Arts.

Get a glimpse of Edmonton tourist attractions as Bigfoot travels through the city streets, visiting popular attractions including China Town, Whyte Avenue, the Citadel Theatre, Jasper Avenue, the Muttart Conservatory, Rexall Place, Alberta Legislature Building and City Hall.

Bigfoot will pique your interest in Edmonton things to do like the Art Gallery of Alberta, solely dedicated to the exhibition and preservation of art and visual culture with over 6,000 object, or Whyte Avenue, one of the 10 best shopping areas in Canada.

Appealing to Sasquatch's outdoorsy side is the North Saskatchewan River Valley and its variety of parks. The Edmonton River Valley is the longest expanse of urban parkland in North America, and serves as a natural corridor for all-season Edmonton outdoor recreation and relaxation including multi-use trails for walking, cross-country skiing, cycling and more.
