Edmonton to Cold Lake

(2 nights) Friday.  Your Northeast Alberta Getaway begins as you are welcomed aboard your deluxe coach in Edmonton. Head out into the area northeast of Edmonton, exploring rural Alberta as you go.  Your day begins with a stop at Canada’s largest PUMPKIN PARK situated in Smoky Lake.  Time to explore and take photos of the large concrete pumpkins, taller than the average person.  Then on to the 20-foot tall fungi replica sculpture of the World’s Largest MUSHROOMS situated in the charming village of Vilna, where mushroom hunting in the area has been a tradition since the early Ukrainian settlers arrived in the early 1900’s.  Visit the World’s Largest PEROGY in the village of Glendon.  Standing 27 feet tall it comes with its own massive fork!  Continue to Cold Lake, staying at the Hotel Dene adjacent to the Casino Dene just outside of town.  Your accommodation includes GAME PLAY COUPONS at the Casino.

Cold Lake

Saturday. Enjoy an included hot buffet BREAKFAST before departing for the COLD LAKE AIR SHOW at Canadian Forces Base Cold Lake.  CFB Cold Lake is home to 4 Wing Garrison, part of Canada’s main jet fighter fleet and home to the Cold Lake Air Show.  This air show returns in 2022 for a salute to frontline workers after a two-year hiatus.  As Canada’s biggest military air show it attracts many aircraft to display on the ground and to demonstrate in the air – it is sure to be a spectacular treat!  Besides the air show, there will be a classic car show on-site, food vendors and more.  After the show ends late afternoon, return to your hotel to relax by the pool or try your luck at the Casino.
