A poster in a local store says “Celebrate Edmonton Trail Days” but doesn’t include details about when, how long, or what parts of Edmonton Trail were celebrated. Based on the poster’s view of the Calgary Tower, it may be a picture of Centre Street! However, it gave a name to this new event.
Edmonton Trail began as a trail connecting Calgary and Edmonton, a role it played until Barlow Trail and later Deerfoot Trail became Highway 2. During the pre-World War I building boom, 3 Street NE, as it was then known, became Regal Terrace’s high street with grocers, butchers, and offices. Today, Edmonton Trail serves both of its historic purposes as a corridor to go through and a place to go to.
