Concerts, hobby-afternoons, and more highlight the activities taking place in St. Albert this weekend.

     1. Lifestyle Expo

The St. Albert Chamber of Commerce's annual Lifestyle Expo is this weekend at Servus Place.

The Expo, which is designed to be a full family-friendly affair, kicks off Friday afternoon at 2:00 p.m., and will be open on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and on Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m..

Over 150 vendors and local businesses (including the Gazette) will be tabling at the event, which will also feature a talent show, a host of local eateries participating in Taste of St. Albert, a petting zoo, bouncy castles, and more.

General admission is $3, however, kids under five get in free and a family pass that covers two adults and up to four children is $10.

More information about the Expo can be found on the Chamber's website.

     2. St. Albert Road Race

The 39th annual St. Albert Road Race, organized by Active Physio Works, is this Sunday.

That means runners will be taking the streets downtown, as well as in the Mission, Lacombe Park, and Grandin neighbourhoods for most of the morning.

The series of runs kicks off at 9:00 a.m. for those running the rather infamous 10 Miler. Starting at 9:10 a.m. will be those running 10 kilometres, followed by those running five kilometres starting at 9:20 a.m..

The one kilometre children's fun run will start at 11:15 a.m..

Unfortunately for those looking to partake in the race, the registration deadline was April 18 at midnight, however, the racers would surely appreciate the public support as they snake through St. Albert's downtown district.

     3. Moss art workshop at the Enjoy Centre

Local greenthumbs looking for a creative opportunity to expand their skill-set should look no further than a moss art workshop taking place at the Salisbury Greenhouse in the Enjoy Centre on Sunday afternoon.

“Get ready to embark on a journey of new skills, connect with fellow plant lovers, and leave with a dazzling creation,” the event's website says. “Create a visually stunning and hassle-free masterpiece using a variety of natural and coloured mosses.”

The workshop is scheduled to start at 2:00 p.m., and could take up to three hours.

The event does require a $11.98 registration fee, however, $10 will be taken off attendee's final purchase for materials used at the end of the event.

Spots in the workshop can be reserved online.
