EDMONTON, AB –
Edmontonians demonstrated their civic pride as they chose K-Days as their staycation destination for 2015. For ten days, Northlands brought music, rides, food and shopping to our city from July 17-26. With more than 160 acres of indoor and outdoor play space, 785,290 fairgoers celebrated their summer at K-Days.
“We consider K-Days 2015 a huge success for Northlands and for the Capital Region,” said Tim Reid, President & CEO of Northlands. “If you joined us on the festival grounds over the last 10 days, you would have seen thousands of smiling faces, unlimited deep-fried food and some amazing live shows. Each guest that joined us on site truly made it their own unique experience.”
K-Days 2015 was kicked off with the downtown parade on July 17. The rain couldn’t dampen the spirits of the spectators who braved the soggy start to celebrate Edmonton’s first responders as Parade Marshals and local heroes as Honorary Parade Marshals. An estimated 171,000 viewers tuned in to Global Edmonton to catch the two-hour broadcast.
On the Northlands grounds, fairgoers enjoyed more than 50 live shows on the K-Days North Stage, 48 midway rides, 25 new and outrageous culinary creations, 11 headliners on the K-Days South Stage presented by TD, eight indoor halls filled with attractions and one great time. As a community-service organization, Northlands is committed to giving back to the community through major events such as K-Days. Throughout the ten days of K-Days, dozens of charities and community organizations were supported with an investments of more than $344,000.
Mark your calendars, because next year’s K-Days runs from July 22-31, 2016.
