Growing up in small town British Columbia, my fondest childhood memories involve being outdoors in the summertime. But the highlight of those gorgeous, warm summers was always the week in August when the carnival would come rolling into town. To this day, the smell of cotton candy and mini doughnuts takes me back to wonderful memories of time spent with family and friends enjoying laughter and fun.
This feeling of excitement was reignited when I began working on TELUS’ involvement at K-Days. K-Days, formerly known as Klondike Days and Edmonton’s Capital Ex, is an annual 10-day exhibition held in Edmonton, Alberta, every July. K-Days is packed with remarkable rides, awesome fireworks, rocking concerts and jaw-dropping exhibits.
As a proud partner of Northlands, the official host of K-Days, TELUS is thrilled to be on-site at K-Days again this summer. If you are in the Edmonton area from Friday, July 18 through to Sunday, July 27,we invite you to experience Wonders of the World presented by TELUS (WOW) in the Midway.
Contained within an eye-catching dome, WOW is an interactive 360 degree video experience that will take you on an incredible journey around the globe. This unique technology makes guests feel like they are travelling to the far reaches of the planet, without leaving the fairgrounds. The WOW exhibit also showcases some of the amazing work done by the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC), one of TELUS’ community partners.
As part of the WOW experience, TELUS and the NCC have also launched a mobile Canadian Critter Challenge. Participants will have the chance to win some great prizes, including a VIP suite experience to an upcoming Blake Shelton or Katy Perry concert at Rexall Place in Edmonton. Nothing says summer like an outdoor fair. I can’t wait to officially welcome summer with 10 days of fun and excitement at K-Days. Hope to see you there!
