Everything You Need to Know About Edmonton: July 1

We’ve hit July, and what a scorcher of a beginning to the month it was. With temperatures hovering around 30 degrees Celcius, the day felt more like Houston than anything one experiences in Western Canada. The Aga Khan breakfast opened early on Monday morning at the Legislature grounds, with the Running Room’s Canada Day 15 kilometre race taking place at the same time.

Mayor Stephen Mandel was one of the first to get in on the Twitterverse action.

As the day progressed, Edmontonians spent time on Twitter lamenting the heat.

It’s Canada Day in Edmonton. Let’s sweat! #canadaday

An awesome “OurChinatownYEG” market took place throughout the day.

And then the fireworks happened.
