A new Edmonton tradition is spreading from its Whyte Avenue roots and expanding to 124th Street.
Next Sunday (Sept. 16), Edmonton foodies will get the chance to sample from the menus of more than a dozen 124th Street eateries, and raise money for a good cause in the process.
On the heels of Red Shoe Crawls held in 2011 and earlier this year on the Whyte Avenue strip, the decision's been made to bring the event to the north side of the river. For $40 (or $100 for a family pass), you can roam participating 124th street restaurants and businesses, while sampling the fare they have made available for the event. The money goes to Ronald McDonald House, which houses children who need hospital care along with their families.
This year’s Whyte Avenue event, held in June, saw more than 200 crawlers hit the streets, raising more than $8,400 for RMH.
You can pre-order passports or get them on the day of the event. Passports can be picked up between noon and 12:45 p.m. on Sept. 16, at the Desert Rose Dance Studio at 12316 Jasper Ave.
