I’m excited to announce the first Instagrammable Walls of Edmonton Photo Walk of the 2018 season returns Saturday, June 23, 2018 along Alberta Avenue (118th Ave!)
Join me and co-host Brittney Le Blanc (@britl) on this fun photo walk – where we’ll take Edmontonians to some of the best Instagrammable Walls of Alberta Avenue (118th Ave) from approximately 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Meet in front of the Alberta Avenue Community Centre at 9210 118 Ave.
The #IGWallsofYEG photo walk is free to attend, family and dog-friendly, and just a generally good time.
On this walk we’ll also stop at a couple of great Alberta Avenue food spots (gems!) for quick take-out bites.
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 an Alberta 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. My general rule of thumb is that an Instagrammable Wall needs to look neat, and be photographable with YOU at the base of it.
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 June 23, we will meet in front of the Alberta Avenue Community Centre at 9210 118 Ave. and walk as a group to several Instagrammable Walls along 118th Avenue, stopping to take photos of one another at each wall along the way. This is a great opportunity to get awesome new profile pictures/cover photos and general great images of yourself and your friends with very artsy backdrops, and explore the neighbourhood!
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. I’ve hosted a few other walks since, and have also created guides to walls in other cities!
There’s been such a great response from Edmontonians who want to discover Instagrammable Walls! The intent is to help Edmontonians find beauty that’s all around this city, encourage people to explore their city, and spur the creation of more Instagrammable Walls!
Hope to see you then!
