IN EDMONTON & Surrounding Areas THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO 2023 Summer Fun Parks & Libraries • U-Picks • Skateparks Amusement Centres • Summer Festivals Farmers’ Markets • Plus More! summercity.ca summercity.ca

With the rays of sunshine illuminating the blue skies and the green landscapes of our surroundings, you won’t find many excuses to stay inside this summer. And here’s our cue to let you know how you can enjoy the splendour of the season.

For openers, we’ve spent countless hours compiling listings of what’s out there to

Contents Summer 2023

46 WALK ON THE WILD SIDE

From ferns to foliage, Wagner Natural Area is a rustic escape just minutes away from more urban jungles

48 FLYING COLOURS

Relatively cheap and straightforward, ultralight aircraft make flight accessible—and a lot of fun—for the masses

50 LOFTY AMBITIONS

Aerial theatre company Firefly takes performance art to new heights

54 THE MUSICAL RIDE: BY THE NUMBERS

FASHION

88 SEEING RED

Pantone introduces Viva Magenta, the official shade for 2023

90 ATTIRE UNRETIRED

Designers breathe new life into previously worn outfits

take advantage of those warm, sunny days from getting an adrenaline rush of the myriad of activities waiting for you, or choice locations where you simply want to relax with a good book.

If you’re curious about some of those options, we’ve also included a wide range of stories that explore a number of culinary ideas to sample

and savour as well as some unique attractions hitting the city within the next few months.

Once again, Summer in the City and summercity.ca strive to be your primary source of fun this summer. And we hope you find it helpful in making summer 2023 a memorable one.

Park It Outside

A delicious picnic menu that’s sure to please

Picnics are fun, but it does take a lot of planning: finding a free day, finding the perfect picnic spot, prepping all the food and drink, and hoping for good weather. We offer you a helping hand with at least the food by giving you some recipes that are quick and easy to make. This means you’ll have more time to enjoy the leisurely day with family and friends.

Picnic Spritzer (pictured left)

This recipe can be a kid-friendly picnic drink, or an adult tipple with a few amendments. Either way, it’s a refreshing way to keep cool at your picnic.

1/2 cup lemon-flavoured Italian soda, or any flavour you prefer

1/4 cup peach nectar

1 tsp grenadine

Fresh berries for garnish

Fill a tall glass with ice cubes. Pour in the grenadine, peach nectar and fill the rest of the glass with the Italian soda. Garnish with your favourite berries. If you’re making a pitcher, just triple the recipe and adjust the ingredients to taste. For a more adult drink, add an ounce of vodka, or try a twist on sangria by adding approximately ½ cup of muscato.

Mild Curry Dip

This recipe will be a veggie-tray staple for future barbeques and patio or picnic parties. If you want a bit more heat in this dip, add a little horseradish.

1/2 cup Miracle Whip (or 1/4 cup each mayonnaise and sour cream)

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper

1/4 tsp mild curry powder (more to taste)

Put all the ingredients in a medium-size bowl and mix well with a whisk. The dip will keep in the refrigerator for up to 4 days in a tightly sealed container.

Cold Noodle Salad

This salad will look impressive, but it’s easier-than-pie to make.

For the Thai Dressing:

1/4 cup unsalted

dry-roasted peanuts

3 tbsp minced ginger

1/4 cup tepid water

2 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp sugar

1 tbsp vegetable oil

2 tsp toasted sesame oil

For the Salad:

1 1/2 cups of brown rice

ramen noodles, cooked and rinsed with cold water

1/2 cup thinly sliced cucumber

1 cup grated carrots

1 bell pepper, thinly sliced (orange, red or yellow)

1 1/2 cups baby spinach

1/2 cup chopped sugar

snap peas

1/4 cup chopped cilantro (optional)

For the dressing, mix all the ingredients in a blender for 15 to 20 seconds. For the salad, combine all the ingredients in a bowl, pour the dressing over the salad and toss until well coated. The salad is best served at room temperature. If you don’t have brown rice ramen noodles, any Asian-style noodle will do.

Marinated Flank Steak

Flank steak is a flavourful cut of meat, and this citrus-based marinade brings out its best qualities.

2 green onions, thinly sliced

1/2 cup lime juice

2 tbsp lemon juice

2 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp grated ginger

1 tsp ground coriander

1/8 tsp red pepper flakes (to taste)

1.5 lb flank steak

Combine all the marinade ingredients in a bowl or re-sealable bag. Place the steak in the bag or bowl, and marinate for 45 minutes at room temperature. Don’t extend the marinating time because the citrus acids will start to cook the meat.

Pre-heat your grill to medium-high 30 minutes before the meat has finished marinating. Place the steak on the grill and turn only once during cooking, approximately 4 minutes per side. You can turn one burner down to low, leaving the other on medium-high and transfer the meat to the low side to allow it to cook without drying out. Cook the steak to how you like it—rare, medium-rare or well-done—then let it rest for 10 minutes before slicing.

Espresso Blondies

Blondies are a fun twist on the traditional brownie recipe, but make a double batch because they won’t last the trip to the picnic site.

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

3/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup of cold butter

3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed

3/4 cup granulated sugar

3 tbsp brewed espresso or strong coffee

1 large egg

2 tbsp vanilla extract

3/4 cup toasted slivered almonds

3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 350ºF. Line a 9-by-7-inch baking pan with parchment paper that’s been cut larger than the pan so you can easily lift out the baked blondies. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Melt the butter and both sugars in a saucepan over medium heat. When everything has melted, remove the pan from the heat and stir in the espresso. Let this mixture cool then whisk in the egg and vanilla. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, and stir until combined. Gently stir in the almonds and chocolate chips. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the edges have pulled away from the pan and it’s golden brown on top.

Let the blondies cool completely in the pan before lifting them out, then cut to your preferred size and keep in a tightly sealed container. If you want a peanut butter hit, swap out half of the chocolate chips for peanut butter chips, or swirl peanut butter on the top before baking. n

A Lick & a Promise

Chilling out just got tastier

Pink Grapefruit & Rosemary Popsicles

Oh yeah, these are good. Bright, refreshing and just elegant enough to call dessert. Give them a try.

1 1/2 cups freshly squeezed pink grapefruit juice

5 tbsp white sugar

1/4 cup water

2 tsp chopped rosemary

Pour the grapefruit juice into a pitcher, and set aside. In small pot, combine the sugar, water and rosemary, and while stirring, bring it to a boil over medium heat. Let boil for 30 seconds, and then remove the pot from the heat and let the syrup cool for 30 minutes. When cooled, strain the syrup into the pitcher of grapefruit juice, and stir.

Pour into popsicle moulds, insert sticks and freeze until solid.

Certain things just taste better in the sunshine. Near the top of that list are ice cream and popsicles. Besides being simple to make, the flavour combinations are endless. Delicious yogourt, and pureed fruit are essential summer ingredients. And our gelato recipe? Bring on the sunshine!

Coconut Lime-Berry Pops

If you can imagine breakfast as a popsicle, this is it. A great treat morning, noon or night.

2 cups frozen mixed berries, thawed and pureed in a food processor

The juice of 1 lime

2 to 3 tbsp white sugar

1 1/2 cups coconut-flavoured Greek yogourt

In medium bowl, combine the pureed berries with the lime juice and sugar. Stir until the sugar is dissolved.

Pour alternating layers of yogourt and berries into your popsicle moulds, creating 4 or 5 layers. With a wooden skewer, swirl the layers together in an up-and-down motion. Insert the popsicle sticks, and freeze until solid.

Chocolate Gelato

Creamy, chocolatey and did we mention creamy? Two cups’ worth! This gelato’s definitely an indulgence but so worth it.

2 cups cream

300 ml can of sweetened condensed milk

2 tsp vanilla extract

3 tbsp cocoa powder

6 Baci chocolates (optional)

Add the cream, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla to a large mixing bowl, and whip with an electric mixer until soft peaks form (don’t overbeat). Add the cocoa powder, and whip it in. If desired, fold in some chopped Baci chocolates. Spoon into a freezer-safe dish, cover with plastic wrap and freeze until solid (about 6 hours). n

Cocktails Let There Be

Ready, set, sip!

It’s finally here. Patio season. And there’s only one rule to play by: if you live where summer’s short, make cocktail hour long. To help inspire that mandate, we’re sharing a few recipes to raise your glasses to. Some are impeccable classics, a few are modern mixes and one’s an excuse to eat popsicles. Enjoy responsibly.

Green-tea Strawberry

Lemonade

Classic lemonade is hard to beat, but green tea and strawberries add a nice twist.

10 cups of water

4 bags of green tea

6 large lemons, juiced

10-oz container of frozen sliced strawberries in syrup, thawed

In a large pitcher, place 10 cups of cold water and 4 bags of green tea. Place in the fridge to brew for 8 hours (or overnight).

Remove the teabags from the brewed tea, and stir in the lemon juice. Next, press the thawed strawberries and syrup through a sieve or food mill, and add the juices to the pitcher. Stir, adjust the sugar and lemon to your liking and serve.

Limoncello Collins

Quite possibly the perfect summer cocktail. Make them one at a time or in batches by the pitcher.

1 oz Limoncello, chilled 1 oz gin 4 oz clementine soda (or club soda), chilled Fresh raspberries and mint (to garnish)

Add the Limoncello, gin and soda to a stemless wine glass, and stir. Garnish with raspberries and mint, and serve.

Rhubarb Sour

Make no mistake. This cocktail’s got kick! Flirty, refreshing and perfect for ushering in summer.

2 oz gin

1/2 oz lemon juice

1/2 oz lime juice

1 1/2 oz rhubarb syrup

2 dashes rhubarb bitters

Lime slices and strawberries (to garnish) A splash of tonic water or sparkling wine (optional)

To make the rhubarb syrup, place 2 cups of chopped rhubarb in a small pot with 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 cup of white sugar. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and let simmer 20 minutes. Strain well, and store the syrup in the refrigerator.

To a cocktail shaker, add the gin, lemon juice, lime juice, rhubarb syrup and bitters. Fill the shaker with ice, secure the lid and shake until chilled. Strain into a glass with ice, and garnish with lime and strawberries. For a sour with a little less kick, add a splash of tonic water or sparkling wine.

6 Surprising Scoops

You won’t believe the bizarre flavours to be found in ice cream

For those weaned on ice cream’s triumvirate of flavours – chocolate, strawberry and vanilla – back in the day, checking out the array of flavours available these days would be like day-tripping into The Twilight Zone. Marching in lockstep with society’s movement towards diversity, so it goes with what tops your cone these days. What’s impressive is that a number of merchants in this part of Alberta have dreamed up some of those unique flavours; here’s a look at a few of them.

Avocado

What was once relegated to guacamole has since become a millennial favourite when served on toast. But using avocado has gone a step further as an ice cream flavour, which at Scoop n Roll is done using a Thai rolling application. (Scoop n Roll)

Cheesequake

Gigi’s has long shaken the foundations of what a cheesecake style of ice cream should be like. Besides cheesecake, this flavour employs peanuts, bits of brownie and chocolate ice cream designed to vault taste a few points higher on the Richter scale. (Gigi’s)

Customized

If you have a choice of more than 60 flavours from which to choose, as is the case at Marble Slab, there’s nothing wrong with being inventive. At this outlet, pick from what’s available to create a combination that suits your fancy, and maybe in the process, you might invent your own flavour. (Marble Slab)

Ube

Filipinos know a thing or two about keeping cool during the summer, and they’re also quite inventive when it comes to ice cream. Yelo’d has among its classic choices Ube, otherwise known as purple yam, which has a slightly nutty vanilla taste. (Yelo’d Ice Cream & Bake Shoppe)

River Valley Road

Kind Ice Cream is not only local, the folks like to think local, hence the Edmonton variation of Rocky Road ice cream, but with a twist and the vibe associated with a leisurely drive on the stretch of road alongside the North Saskatchewan River.

From Qingdao to Edmonton

How green onion cakes became a cherished local dish

When the recent pandemic hit the city and canceled a slew of outdoor events, one attraction besides the entertainment sadly missed by Edmontonians was an exotic pancake appetizer common at those gatherings across the city. For years, the northern Chinese delicacy known as green onion cake jockeyed for attention between the mini-donuts and elephant ears at kiosks during major festivals and it wasn’t long before locals embraced the appetizer as their own.

But more than 40 years ago, green onion cakes were pretty much non-existent in the city until a former construction worker from Qingdao, China opted for a future in the hospitality industry. Siu To, who missed the cuisine from his homeland, fortunately knew how to cook them and from that mindset sprang a unique menu that included the green onion cake appetizer. In 1978, the dish premiered at his first eatery, Happy Garden and then his next venture Mongolian Food Experience.

Almost overnight, To’s cakes were hot items across the city to the point where other restaurants wanted to buy the items in bulk for their clientele. Then, when the first of many festivals sprang up all over the city from the Folk Festival to the Fringe in the early 1980s, To saw an opportunity to make the dish available at these events, and before he knew it, his cakes were selling like hotcakes.

What’s unusual is that nowhere else in Canada or even the U.S. are green onion cakes anywhere near as popular as they are in Edmonton. A few initiatives have taken place to make To’s creation the official food of the city. And while that has yet to happen, it’s already achieved notoriety as an attraction with such achievements as being a featured food at a Royal Alberta Museum exhibit on Chinese restaurants in 2013 and a listing in Charlene Rooke’s tome Edmonton: Secrets of the City

As for why the pancake-shaped dish is uniquely popular on the western outskirts of the prairies, it’s a mystery. Some like the fact that it’s not messy to eat, others like it as a diversion from the more sugary food available at events. But more ardent supporters think the dish’s simplicity is a reflection of the unpretentious demeanor of Edmontonians.

Whatever the reason, while delicious, it’s also easy to make. And To, who now runs his own restaurant, Green Onion Cake Man, hasn’t made the recipe a secret, hoping to share his favorite dish with as many folks as possible.

Siu To’s Green Onion Cake Recipe

4 c. all-purpose flour

1 tsp. baking soda

¼ tsp. baking soda

450 mL water

¼ c. shortening

¼ c. vegetable oil

1 tsp. sesame oil

2 tsp. salt

2-3 bunches chopped green onions

1 bottle sambal hot sauce

Mix the flour baking soda, baking powder and water in a large bowl. Knead the dough until texture is the same as your cheek. Cover the bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl, mix the shortening, vegetable oil, sesame oil, salt and green onions. Spread out the dough into a circular shape and flatten to 1 cm. thin with a rolling pin. Spread out the green onion mixture onto the dough.

From the bottom, stretch the dough and roll it inwards until it is a long baguette-like roll. Cut it into eight rectangular pieces. Squeeze and pinch the ends shut. Flatten each into a pancake shape and store between two rectangular sheets of parchment paper.

Heat oil in a frying pace. Place cake and pan fry until golden brown on each side. Serve with sambal hot sauce. n

Pita Power

The humble shawarma is on the rise

It’s no contest regarding what pita-wrapped delicacy rules the culinary roost in Canada. From coast to coast, the donair is king. After all, it was invented more than 30 years ago in Halifax. In terms of popularity it easily outranks the shawarma, a centuries-old dish that’s popular in Europe, although it’s starting to gain momentum in this country. And while proponents of these rival dishes vie for your attention and taste buds, they share a common history.

Both involve the rotation method of roasting, which was done horizontally until the 19th century when Turkish chef Mehmetglu Iskender Efendi invented a method to cook the meat in a slow vertical spin, allowing for the morsels to self-baste. That culinary style has been preserved in the dishes’ monikers with donair stemming from the Turkish döner, meaning rotate. Shawarma comes from the Arabic word šāwirmā and Ottoman Turkish šāwarmā, both meaning “something that is spun or turned over.”

Not only are the methods and definitions similar, donairs and shawarmas also share a common ancestor called the döner kebap. Others call it the Iskender kebap (after the inventor) and Bursa kebap (after the Turkish city where it was created). But the method for making the dish is the same, starting with thin slices of basted lamb atop a pile of diced pide (a Mediterranean flatbread) before adding hot tomato sauce and sheep’s milk butter, then garnishing with parsley and a dollop of yogurt.

Beyond that point, the trails associated with the donair and shawarma diverge. The donair’s more immediate origins are easier to trace, dating back to the 1970s when Halifax restaurateur Peter Gamoulakos tried to sell a Greek pita wrap called a gyro. The roasted lamb dish that includes diced tomatoes, onion and a tzatziki sauce wasn’t exactly a hot item. So Gamoulakos swapped out the lamb and tzatziki in favour of beef and a sweet sauce and Canada’s culinary world hasn’t been the same since.

The considerably older shawarma sticks closer to its döner kebap roots and is traditionally made with rotated lamb, sheep or chicken. Spiced and served with garlic sauce, tomato and onion, the rest of the ingredients vary according to region in the Middle East. Israeli consumers avoid yogurt or butter as Jewish dogma forbids meat and dairy in the same meal. Shawarmas are also popular across Europe, although oddly enough, they’re more often referred to as doner kebabs, presumably due to the influence of Turkish immigrants who arrived in the 1960s.

In Canada, the shawarma doesn’t have such an irony when it comes to identity; it’s more like an identity crisis when going up against the donair. But the shawarma is gradually making inroads into Canadian appetites with donair shops adding the dish to their menus. Further publicity potential

could be realized with Shawarma Day, a campaign started in 2020 occurring annually on October 15. Should the shawarma eventually catch up to the donair in terms of popularity, the big winners will be consumers who benefit from even more pita-wrapped options. n

Just Add Air

How inflatable movie theatres can project the ideal family night outdoors

But a crafty bunch of entrepreneurs has been operating for years realizing that you don’t need to own a patch of land to operate a drive-in as long as the infrastructure can be portable via an inflatable giant screen. All you have to do is contract out your services to anyone with a large yard and a hankering to catch flicks the old-fashioned way: outdoors and with eager friends and families attending.

That’s how Twilite Music has been operating all across Alberta the past several years, although they have added a few sideshows to the mix. “One thing that we do that no one else does is that we do a lot of entertainment before and after the movie,” says CEO Ron Waterfield. These add-on packages are delivered in the form of pre and post-movie entertainment such as dance parties, photo-booths, and game shows with prizes handed out. Along with the entertainment, Twilite Music provides popcorn machines, professional stereo systems, inflatable couches, and even an usher to guide you to your seat. This is all featured in their “open air cinema” package.

While classic Disney fare is popular for childrenthemed movie nights, Twilite Music also offers themes such as drive-in-style ’50s car nights with a screening of American Graffiti. Sports

nights and musical nights are also featured in the theme packages, where the likes of Field of Dreams and The Sound of Music are screened. Waterfield says that although children-themed packages are the most popular events, even adults want to get in on the fun and transport themselves to the nostalgic times of their youth.

“I’m getting a lot of parents where they’re sitting in the car with boxes of popcorn and saying, ‘Jeez, I haven’t done this since the ’70s, and they’re just tickled pink waiting for the movie to start up.”

However, it’s not as easy as inflating the screen and pressing play on the projector. Under Canadian copyright law, most commercial films viewed in public spaces require a public performance license. These licenses can be obtained through Audio Ciné Films (ACF) and cost anywhere from $275–$400 for single usages, depending on the movie and crowd size. Smaller backyard bashes with family and friends don’t apply. When it comes to choosing which films to screen, only home video releases and pre-releases (films in the gap between theatre and home release) can be shown. Films still in their theatrical run do not apply.

TeeBreeze Entertainment is another company that specializes in inflatable movie screens, catering to an assortment of events such as weddings, graduations, company seminars, and even celebrations of life. “Our job is to make the clients job easy,” says event coordinator Ryan Fosteradding that their entertainment packages include clowns, hypnotists, magicians, and bouncy castles for the kids.

Along with the screen and entertainment, concession items like cotton candy, hot dogs, candy apples, and old-fashioned popcorn machines are offered to clients. However, Foster says that the real credit deserves to go to the organizations and volunteers that hire TeeBreeze. “Everyone loves a party, and these people work tirelessly to provide the best for their organizations and guests.” n

Drive-in movie theatres have been a summertime staple in Canada dating back all the way to 1946 when the first facility of its kind swung open its gates. After their glory years during the ’50s and ’60s, the popularity of drive-ins has since lost its sheen, due to the arrival of multiplex cinemas in malls, making it convenient to shop and catch a flick in one stop.

Walk on the Wild Side

From ferns to foliage, Wagner Natural Area is a rustic escape just minutes away from more urban jungles

Situated west of Edmonton on Highway 16, Wagner Natural Area is a provincial nature reserve that’s home to an abundance of wildlife and biodiversity that connects its visitors to the beauty of Alberta’s natural habitats. Spanning more than 250 hectares and hosting a scenic 1.5 km walking trail, it exists to conserve all that biological diversity for scientific, educational, and research purposes.

“We’re proud that we can share the area with the broader community, said David Ealey, President of the Wagner Natural Area Society, “and they can recognize that there is something special about it.” What makes Wagner Natural Area so special is its fens–a type of wetland that forms when groundwater rises to the surface–giving the area a strong source of water and nutrients. Fens represent a small sample of Alberta’s boreal forest, and they exist due to the aquifers formed during the last ice age, over 10,000 years ago. Those aquifers allow groundwater to flow underground, which in turn seeps downhill into St. Albert’s Big Lake.

The Marl Pond walking trail is open for visitors, but because of the wetland area, the trail can become incredibly wet and filled with mosquitoes. Waterproof footwear and insect repellant are highly recommended. Along the trail, you’re likely to see a variety of wildlife such as willow swamps, black spruce forests, and marl ponds themselves.

“The wetland provides suitable conditions for the growth of a lot of different vegetation, which is epitomized by our orchids,” says Ealey. The area

hosts 16 of Alberta’s 24 orchid species–including lady’s slipper and the rare bog adder’s mouth–as well as marsh marigolds, sundews, and butterworts.

Bird watchers can have a field day observing such species as the ruby-crowned kinglet, tree swallow, and yellow warbler known to be found in the area around this time of year. Because of the area’s proximity to the surrounding communities, large mammals from beavers and coyotes to white-tailed deer and even moose are harder to come across.

Wagner Natural Area was originally discovered by naturalists in the 1940s and was later named after property owner William Wagner, who gave the original parcel of land to the provincial government for protection in 1975. Supervising the natural area is the Wagner Natural Area Society, which was created in 1982 under the Alberta Government’s Societies Act to protect the biological and physical wellbeing of the park.

In 1986, the society joined the Alberta Government’s Volunteer Stewards program. These volunteers maintain exceptional park conditions and foster a commitment to conservation for the park. The society functions to coordinate special events in the natural area, such as guided tours for elementary schools, academic research studies for summer students, and hosting Junior Forest Wardens to help evaluate the growth of the park.

According to Ealey, several thousand visitors annually flock to Wagner Natural Area to experience the array of family-friendly events and wildlife.

“We have different visitors for different reasons, and people add so much to their personal wellbeing by being able to connect with a natural area that is special, that is cared for, and that is interesting to experience.” n

Wagner Natural Area Visitor Advisory

• Soil moisture count is high, so bring waterproof boots

• Keep dogs on a leash at all times

• Insect repellent is highly recommended

• The area is pedestrian-only, so no bikes, ATVs, etc.

• No sanitation-removal facilities are on-site, so take all garbage with you when leaving

summercity.ca 47

“Ever been inside a cloud before?” Claudio Mota shouts over his shoulder. Straining to hear the flight instructor over the buzz of the engine, all I can say is that I’ve seen clouds from airplane windows. That’s nothing like feeling it on your skin, Claudio answers, and I get a sense of why he feels so at ease now, a couple of thousand feet above a looping bend in the North Saskatchewan River, northeast of Drayton Valley. The Air Adventure Flight School’s ultralight trike that he’s piloting and in which I’m a passenger has an open-air cockpit, so the views are all around us. The twisting, greenish-brown river. The fields, brightly verdant with July rain, stretching into the hazy distance. A tractor-trailer crawling along a secondary highway below. Endless sky. From this height, everything looks not so much distant as somehow miniaturized.

Flying Colours

Relatively cheap and straightforward, ultralight aircraft make flight accessible—and a lot of fun—for the masses

ADVENTURE

Looking up, I see we still have some distance to climb before we reach the nearest clouds. Claudio obviously intends to take us up there, and I admittedly tense a little. I’ve never been a fan of heights, let alone flying. But the ultralight experience is surprisingly different. Exposed to the elements, you feel like you’re more immersed in the act of flying. Rather than, say, passively watching things unfold from a narrow, doublepaned window.

Claudio explains the reason he wants to go higher: with the evening sun sinking in the west, it’s a good opportunity to view a glory—an optical illusion cast on clouds or mist by a low sun. A glory consists of a magnified shadow circled by bands of rainbow, created as water droplets diffract sunlight. They’re so named because the rainbow resembles the halos in old religious paintings. If nothing else, it’s a handy excuse for exploring the range and possibilities of ultralight flying.

Ultralights represent one of the fastest growing areas of aviation in Canada. First developed in the 1980s, they now make up a fifth of all registered civilian aircraft. These lightweight, powered hang gliders are controlled by weight shift—the pilot steers the aircraft by applying force to a control bar. The engine is used to gain altitude, after which the pilot may cut power to glide back to earth. The aircraft are often referred to as “trikes,” giving rise to a common analogy: if flying a Cessna is like driving a Cadillac, then flying an ultralight is like riding a motorbike.

Claudio shifts the control bar, and we start to climb. Though it’s a summer evening, ideal time for flying, it’s a windy one. We’re protected from the elements and the temperature change— about a degree Celsius for every 100 metres of altitude—by our heavy flight suits. My nerves are slightly on edge, though, as I watch buildings and features on the ground grow ever smaller.

Before long we’re levelling out. Fast-moving wisps of stratus cloud drift across our faces, and indeed, it is a cool sensation. Claudio steers the trike around, putting us between the setting sun and a mass of cloud. I look to my left, and there it is: the dark shadow of the trike on a white backdrop, surrounded by rings of colour. We linger for a bit, taking it in along with the expansive views all around us. Then Claudio kills the engine, and we comfortably drift back to the sureness of ground again.

Besides ultralight trikes, Air Adventure Flight School also offers flight instruction for paragliders, gyroplanes (a sort of mini-helicopter that uses air power to attain lift), and paramotors (a parachute powered by a motor worn on the pilot’s back). The school is located on Highway 624, about 21 km north of Drayton Valley or 31 km southwest of Seba Beach. Visit airadventurefs.ca for more info. n

Getting an Ultralight Permit in Canada

According to Transport Canada, ultralight permits must be at least 16 years of age and medically cleared to fly. They have to complete a minimum of 20 hours of flight instruction and pass a written examination. Additionally, they must acquire a minimum of 10 hours flight time, including at least two hours of solo flight time, and a minimum of 30 takeoffs and landings, with 10 or more of those as the solo occupant.

Lofty Ambitions

Aerial theatre company Firefly

takes performance art to new heights

As an aerial artist, Annie Dugan literally experiences a series of ups and downs in her work. But while she’s equipped to take on those altitude variances, she’d rather do without handling the more metaphorical highs and lows inherent in running her company, Firefly Theatre.

A case in point was the pandemic, which shut down pretty much every business that didn’t sport a grocery or liquor storefront, just when Dugan was polishing off plans to introduce the company’s first annual Alberta Circus Arts Festival. “I came up with it before the pandemic and it just takes a little while when you have a brand new idea for a festival,” recalled Dugan, who is Firefly’s artistic director. “They don’t happen overnight. There’s a lot of planning, thought and design and fundraising. We had it already to start in 2020, and of course that didn’t happen.”

Two years later, when vaccinations and government quarantine directives mitigated the dangers of Covid, Firefly was ready to take another shot at it circus arts festival debut, retaining most of the lineup from the aborted 2020 version. But just days before the event, a flood at their choice venue

of La Cité Francophone created a scramble to reassemble the proceedings at the University of Alberta’s Timms Centre.

If there’s a sense of guarded optimism that all will go well for the second annual event, slated to run June 22-25 at La Cité Francophone and the Mill Creek Ravine, Dugan’s covered it up with bubbly enthusiasm. “We have contemporary circus coming from across Canada,” she said, wistfully pointing out one of its main attractions, Quebecois troupe Barka, an 18-piece ensemble of musicians and performers fusing dance music with circus disciplines. The band will also be on hand to inaugurate the festival with a dance party. “It gets everybody hyped up and gives you an outlet to dance and have a good time,” Dugan added.

ADVENTURE

Also on the itinerary is the profound “Twist of Fate,” a solo show by Angola Murdoch, a gymnast sidelined by scoliosis, although she uses her aerial talents to tell her remarkable story. Another female one-hander is “Deep Dish,” which stars Winnipeg contortionist Samantha Halas, who revisits her formative years working as a waitress. “She has these crazy skills she does with pizzas,” noted Dugan.

A mixed bag of Canadian circus performers will take part in the festival’s “North by Northwest” cabaret as well as a free family-friendly event in Mill Creek Ravine. Rounding out the proceedings will be a series of workshops that will include such skill sets as stilt-walking and juggling.

summercity.ca 51

Ever since Dugan and her husband, local actor John Ullyatt founded the company in 2000, Firefly’s entertainment programming has not only delivered some all-ages fare, the company has also taken on some heady, surreal stuff. One production tackled a two-decade odyssey of the corpse of Argentinean icon Eva Peron. Another recent show explored the hellish works of Dante, while yet another aerial presentation concerned one man’s obsession with rubber ducks.

Regardless of the content, Firefly’s won over a loyal audience, not only in Edmonton but worldwide, via the company’s performances at the Edinburgh Fringe in Scotland, a Canada Day celebration in London, England, and at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C. The company has also received such honours as the City of Edmonton Excellence Award in Arts and Culture and a Mayor’s Award for Innovative Artistic Direction.

Former New Yorker Dugan first joined a circus in her region when she was 21, riding horses. After taking some time off to learn about theatre, she discovered an acrobatic style that would change her life. “When I got out of theatre school, I saw some people working on aerial silks and the corde lisse [a vertically-suspended rope],” recalled Dugan. “Which is very new and that really hit North America in the mid-‘90s. That style of working was developed in France in the ‘80s. To me, it looked like a fabulous way to tell stories.”

Dugan boned up on the intricacies of aerial art and took time off to head to Edmonton to play at the Edmonton Street Performers Festival in 1997 and the Fringe Festival in 1998. She made the permanent move to the Alberta capital in 1999. “I had a rope and I had trapeze and I wanted to find a place where I could hang them and train, and there wasn’t one anywhere,” she recalled. “I found a gymnastics club that let me hang my equipment and myself and John Ulyatt, we formed our company and started creating.”

They created more than an aerial theatre company, but a whole mini-industry focused on circus art. Since Firefly’s inception, scores of artists have learned the craft at the company and incorporated that knowledge into subsequent projects. “There are three circus schools and recreational circus schools in town which were started from people who came from Firefly,” said Dugan.

And while the business end of aerial arts has its own peaks and valleys, Dugan credits another unpredictable element that tipped the scales in her decision to stay in Edmonton, namely the nice summer weather the city enjoyed during her previous two visits. “I had a great time,” Dugan said. “The sun was shining, and I’m telling you, if the weather was bad, and if it rained and snowed, we might not be talking now.” n

The Musical Ride: By the Numbers

One of Canada’s greatest traditions hits the road this summer

One thing the Royal Canadian Mounted Police doesn’t mess with is tradition, which is why its signature Musical Ride has kept its look and repertoire relatively unchanged over the decades. The sight of peace officers in red tunic astride their equine partners continues to be a draw across Canada, entertaining spectators via the attraction’s institutional manoeuvres, from the opening procession to the final criss-cross. This year, as part of the RCMP’s 150th anniversary, folks are in for a treat as the Musical Ride embarks on its first national tour since the pandemic, with performances slated to take place in Alberta.

Seeing RED

Pantone introduces Viva Magenta, the official shade for 2023

Since the pandemic, the Pantone Color Institute has struggled with elevating the notion of vibrancy to ward off the doldrums of isolation and lockdowns. Last year, they created the blue-ish Veri Peri. In 2020, they rolled out two colors – variations of yellow and grey – to inject positive feelings among the masses.

This year, Pantone continues its hop, skip and jump across the colour spectrum to unveil Viva Magenta, a deep red to nudge the restlessness that’s been wallowing in stasis the past couple of years. “In this age of technology, we look to draw inspiration from nature and what is real,” said Leatricer Eiseman, Pantone’s executive director. “Pantone 18-1750 Viva Magenta descends from the red family, and is inspired by the red of cochineal, one of the most precious dyes belonging to the natural dye family as well as one of the strongest and brightest the world has known.”

And as these items in this spread demonstrate, there’s no time like the summer to make the most of this hot new colour. n

Designers breathe new life into previously worn outfits

These days, hand-me-downs are enjoying brand-me-up status, adding more mileage to the fabrics, but with new identities all their own. In part, you can credit the environmentally-inspired recycle movement for hinting that even clothing can be repurposed into creative fashion designs. Maybe give kudos to an unpredictable economy for triggering ideas to revitalize outdated outfits or other items that no longer fit the youngsters. Or tip your hat to the notion that some of the stuff folks used to wear is simply too good to throw out.

Local crafty designers have already been going the upcycle route by taking vintage and other previously-worn wares and with a stitch here and there have come up with new looks for old items. The result is an array of wardrobe pieces from jackets and tote bags reconstructed from vintage quilts to denims paired with upcycled fabric inserts. Round it out with second-hand jewelry and accessories and you’re good to go.

To further press the point, this photo essay was shot in the art gallery of the Multicultural Heritage Centre in Stony Plain, located in a repurposed institution that was previously the Old Red Brick School House built in 1925. n
