I’m excited to announce the second Instagrammable Walls of Edmonton Photo Walk taking place Saturday, July 8, 2017 on Whyte Avenue!
My friend Kayla and I will be co-hosting the photo walk – where we’ll take Edmontonians to some of the best Instagrammable Walls in the Old Strathcona/Whyte Avenue area from approximately 1 to 4 p.m. Meet at Dr. Wilbert McIntyre Park Gazebo (8303 104 Street).
The #IGWallsofYEG photo walk is free to attend, family and dog-friendly, and this time we’re hoping to incorporate a casual food stop at the end of the walk (if you’re interested/able to hang around!)
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 Whyte Avenue 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 July 8, we will meet at Dr. Wilbert McIntyre Park Gazebo (8303 104 Street), and walk as a group to several Instagrammable Walls, stopping to take photos of one another at each wall along the way (with the purpose of course, of sharing on social media!)
Whyte Avenue Art Walk
Please note: The Whyte Avenue Art Walk will be taking place during this same weekend (so it’ll be a really artsy time!) Please plan ahead as parking will be at a serious premium.
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. 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 July 8!
