If there’s any time of the year to explore the potential of High Level Line, it’s the summer.
So we’re circling a day in our calendar and asking for help from Edmontonians to bring High Level Line to life.
On September 7th, let’s activate High Level Line.
What does that mean? Well, consider this an open call to make it awesome. The streetcar will be in service with 2 weekend cars, so we encourage everyone to hop on the streetcar one way then walk back along the line. Imagine what the Line could be like if it was fully connected and activated all the time!
High Level Line Day
Saturday, September 7
How can you help? Tell us! Possibilities for activation from the community:
Musicians - small performances along the line, buskers.
Theatre groups - intimate improv shows and other live performances.
Street performers - set up along the line and wait for your audience to fill your hat!
Lemonade stands - Hey, kids! Let’s get the world’s greatest lemonade crawl going.
Bike repair stations
History tours - We all want to learn more about the rich history of the corridor and river valley.
Urban design tours - We’re talking to you, all you Jane’s Walk hosts. It’s not May, but people love going for walks and talking about their city.
Lantern parade at dusk
Sidewalk chalk art - any artists? Kids… hopscotch competition?
Cycling and running ghost races on Strava - anyone know how to set these up?
What else? We want to know!
We will also need sponsors. This day can’t possibly come together without them, and we’d be so pleased if you have a company or personal pocketbook that can lend a hand.
Please send us a note with your idea, and include the time of day you’d like to do it. We’ll share the plans for the day as they start taking shape. For now, please let us know how you can help!
Note: The event was originally booked for August, but we’ve moved it to September 7th.
