I’m excited to announce the third Instagrammable Walls of Edmonton Photo Walk taking place Saturday, August 12, 2017 in Chinatown/East Downtown!
This time, my friend Brittney Le Blanc (@britl) will be co-hosting the photo walk – where we’ll take Edmontonians to some of the best Instagrammable Walls in the Chinatown/East Downtown area from approximately 1 to 4 p.m. Meet at 97 Street and 107 Avenue (in the Lucky 97 Paking Lot)!
The #IGWallsofYEG photo walk is free to attend, family and dog-friendly, and if you’re interested, we’ll be stopping in at my parent’s restaurant King Noodle House Pho Hoang afterwards for some post-walk Vietnamese noodle soup (pho!) Please note: The optional restaurant stop is cash-only!
RSVP on Facebook and read more about what an Instagrammable Walk is, below!
Let’s celebrate the beautiful, Instagrammable walls in our city by going on a Chinatown/East Downtown Instagrammable Walls Photo Walk.
What is an Instagrammable Wall?
It’s basically an interesting-looking wall that makes a great backdrop for a photo of yourself or your friends, posted to Instagram.
Instagrammable Walls can be mural walls, bold, colourful walls, graffiti walls, interesting textured-walls – you name it. Instagrammable Walls add beauty to a city, and attracts people to a location that might otherwise not be frequented. It can often surprise you.
What is a Photo Walk?
A Photo Walk is when a group of people get together and walk around a specific location, finding interesting opportunities and areas for taking pictures.
Bring your cameras/phones, cute outfits, water bottle or snacks, and comfortable walking shoes! You’re welcome to join us for the entire walk, or just parts of the walk.
You can RSVP so we have an idea of numbers over on Facebook, or just show up the day of!
Where is the Meeting Point?
On Saturday August 12, we will meet at the Lucky 97 parking lot in Chinatown (97 Street and 107 Avenue) and walk as a group to several Instagrammable Walls in the Chinatown/East Downtown area, stopping to take photos of one another at each wall along the way (with the purpose of course, of sharing on social media!)
Do you want to learn more about Chinatown?
There’s also another free Chinatown walking tour (less about photos and walls, more about history and culture) being run by my friend Sharon the very next day (Sunday!) Learn more here.
The first Instagrammable Walls of Edmonton Photo Walk took place on Saturday, June 3, 2017 as part of Make Something Edmonton’s 100 in 1 Day transform your city event. There’s been a great response from Edmontonians who want to go on these walks! The intent is to help Edmontonians discover the beauty that’s all around this city, and spur the creation of more Instagrammable Walls!
Hope to see you on August 12!
