Red Bull Crashed Ice is happening Friday and Saturday. Gates open both days at 4:00 but most things get going around 6. Tickets start at $5.00 and you can buy them here and you can watch while staying warm at the Ice Club. You may want to show up at 4 when the gates open though because that’s also when the beer gardens open! “The beer garden opens as soon as the gates open. As for food vendors, food trucks will be located in four locations throughout the venue: in and just outside of the beer garden, at the finish line and on Jasper Ave.”
This isn’t just any old race either, this is the FINALE! We get to see a Champion crowned this weekend “the overall World Championship is on the line in Edmonton. Racers have been competing in a variety of events since December, earning points to win the sport’s highest honour. Come Saturday night, the results of the season will be decided.”
Here are some road closures you’ll want to avoid due to the event
Sections of Jasper Ave, 95A ST NW, Grierson Hill NW will be closed from 9am until midnight from March 9 through March 10
101 Ave NW will be closed during the same dates from 7am until midnight
95 ST NW will also be closed on March 9–10 from 4am until 11pm
