    Hi. We’ve never done this before. i just bought our date night tickets. How does this work? Print off all 4 tickets (2 have the time slot) and come to Magrath Mansion, 6240 Ada Boulevard Northwest, Edmonton, AB T5W 4N5 before our 3 pm time slot? Is there parking around that area?

      Hi Maria,
      We are thrilled to welcome you aboard the VIP Wagon Tour at 3 pm on Saturday, September 14. It looks like you purchased 2 tickets. Did you mean to purchase 4? Each ticket is per person and the “add-on ticket” is to reserve your time slot. If you are looking to purchase 4 tickets, please make sure to do that as soon as possible and reserve the additional 2 time slots to guarantee your seats so you are not disappointed! We will be sending out an email closer to the date to all attendees with more details. We will be encouraging all guests to arrive early as we are also collaborating with our small businesses in the neighbourhood who will be hosting something special for the tour. You are also welcome to stay after the wagon tour to experience all that we have to offer!
      There is free street parking either along Ada or along any residential street nearby!
      Talk soon! We look forward to welcoming you soon!
