Winter has been harsh this year, so we can’t wait to shake off the winter cold and feel the warm days of spring once again. However, it’s only March and winter chill is still in the air. I seem to share everyone’s thoughts, will spring ever arrive?
The Weather Network says not just yet. There might be a little delay, so hold on to your coats just a little bit longer, perhaps until mid-April. Meteorologists say that March will still be mostly snowy, although occasionally there will be snippets of warm weather. Thinking of the weather forecast, I’m reminded of the Ian Tyson song, “Springtime in Alberta.” It muses on sunny days, endless sky, spring time, and then without a warning a winter storm.
Indeed, spring weather in Leduc County can be quite unpredictable, but Leduc realtors love spring because it brings good things to come, and when the warm weather does come fully, we Leduc people embrace it with full ardor.
Leduc also has many spring celebrations, but it’s wonderful to experience what the rest of Alberta has to offer, too. Isn’t it fantastic that our Leduc real estate properties are conveniently located near Edmonton, the City of Festivals, and other key Alberta cities?
I know many several Leduc residents who take a trip to St. Albert during the last week of May to catch bullfighters and steer-wrestlers in action during the Rainmaker Rodeo, and also to delight in sugary donuts and all kinds of stomach-churning rides. As for me, the first day of June, I can’t wait to get to Edmonton for the Heart of the City Festival. It’s basically an art festival, with a focus on local amateur musicians and other kinds of artists. I’m always amazed by the sheer creativity and artistry of our homegrown talents. You’ll find Leduc artists showcasing their talents there, too.
I may try to see the Kurimoto Japanese Garden Spring Festival this year, also the first week of June. The Japanese Festival will be held on the grounds of the University of Alberta, at the famous Devonian Botanical Garden specifically, which is in itself a treat. The garden is one of the most beautiful in all of Alberta. I’m always interested in Japanese culture and history, and I’ve heard that the festival’s art displays, dance and music performances, sword plays, Taiko drummer showcase, and martial art demonstrations are impressive.
Mid-June, beer lovers everywhere flock to Edmonton. More than 300 types of beer from over 110 international breweries are available to sample.
There are many more festivals to enjoy this year, but if you are planning to invest in a Leduc real estate property contact my office and I can personally help you with that. Many amazing homes await you and your family in the charming city of Leduc.
