Join Us for 'Louie in the Neighbourhood' on Friday, May 8
(EDMONTON, AB) - The Edmonton Oil Kings are striving to bring the community together (while we're forced to be apart) by engaging with fans in the city in a unique and memorable way.
The (Oil) King of the Jungle himself, Louie the Lion, will continue visiting various areas of the city Friday, May 8 when he will be walking the streets of the Millwoods neighbourhood from 1:00 PM - 1:30 PM MT.
Louie is encouraging fans to wave from their windows, cheer from their porches or air-five from their front yards (while maintaining a socially-acceptable distance of at least six feet/two metres apart).
Fans can nominate their neighbourhood by visiting @EdmOilKings on social media and telling us where and why their community should be the next stop for a future visit from Louie.
If you are able to join us and lend coverage to this feel-good event, the starting point of the route will be at Dan Knott School at 1:00 PM MT.
