ADVERTORIAL

WHEN SUMMER FINALLY ARRIVES IN ALBERTA, IT’S SOMETHING TO REALLY CELEBRATE And the community of Fort McMurray takes this to heart all summer long. The festivities start in June with the National Aboriginal Day Celebration on June 21: the Fort McMurray Historical Society hosts a full day of celebrations at Heritage Park, a living museum that you can also visit any othe r day of the summer to check out its 19 historical buildings and get a firsthand experience of what life was like in the area’s early days. Fort McMurray is certainly a place which does Canada Day proud - their YMM Canada Day Festival features two nights of Nexen CanadaROCKS evening concerts, on June 30 (paid) and July 1 (free). On July 1, Legacy Dodge sponsors a full day of allages events including the Canada Day Parade in the morning and an afternoon of live entertainment, roving performers, track and fieldstyle games and Fort McMurray’s first ever Teddy Bear’s Picnic! Canada Day wraps up with the free Nexen CanadaROCKS concert, featuring the students of the Dan Gillies School of

Rock summer camp and headliners yet to be announced, and of course a brilliant fireworks display to bring the evening to a close. Nestled along the banks of the Athabasca River – the Fort McMurray Golf Club hosts the Syncrude Boreal Open July 8 to 14. After watching 156 of best golfers compete on the PGA TOUR CANADA take in a round with friends on this course carved out of the Boreal Forest! The next major summer festival in Fort McMurray is the TransAlta interPLAY Festival at the beginning of August, hosted by Events Wood Buffalo. Now in its 23rd year, interPLAY has expanded from a weekend street performer’s festival to a full 10 days of programming. A concert by folkrock artist Amelia Curran kicks things off on August 2, followed by a classic car rally on August 3 and then all the multicultural food you can eat at the Heritage Day Festival on August 5. Over the August long weekend, the park at Keyano College is bursting with performers of all kinds, while

the three theatres in the college host Fringe plays, mainstream theatre and children’s shows all weekend long. There’s also plenty to do in the summer in Fort McMurray aside from the festivals. MacDonald Island Park could keep you occupied for days, as Canada’s largest community recreational, leisure and social centre. Enjoy the summer sun while golfing 18 holes at the 240-acre Miskanaw Golf Club, or seek shade in the Suncor Community Leisure Centre – take a dip in the aquatic centre, workout in the 15,000-square-foot fitness centre, go for a skate on the ice rinks, let your kids burn off energy at the indoor playgrounds, or check out some local art at the Community Art Gallery. Fort McMurray is also home to the Syncrude Sport & Wellness Centre at Keyano College, which caters to sports and fitness fans of all types and is home to a variety of community sports leagues as well as a 6,500-square-foot fitness centre. Home to the Keyano Huskies both aspiring athletes and fans have an amazing opportunity to

watch outstanding college level action in a variety of sports. If enjoying the arts is more your cup of tea, stop by the Suncor Energy Centre for the Performing Arts to see one of their theatre and performing art shows that run regularly throughout the year. When you need a break from the hustle and bustle of urban life, step out onto one of the hiking trails in the Birchwood Trail system, which has over 130 kilometres of trails winding right through the heart of Fort McMurray. Northern Alberta is a fisher’s paradise, with thousands of kilometres of rivers and streams as well as plentiful lakes throughout the entire area. Fort McMurray sits at the confluence of the Clearwater and Athabasca Rivers, so you can cast your line right from town or hop in a float plane and head out to one of over a dozen nearby fishing lodges. And of course a trip to Fort McMurray isn’t complete without a visit to the Oil Sands Discovery Centre, where you can learn about Alberta’s key economic industry and then take a tour of the oil sands operations themselves. Whatever summer activities you enjoy, come experience Fort McMurray and the region of Wood Buffalo - there’s no truer way to describe this community’s vibrant summer life!

with an open heart and vibrant energy SASKATOON WELCOMES THE WORLD

SASKATOON

is calling From the moment I arrived I felt inspired in every way As a huge music enthusiast, I always make a point of going to festivals around the country so this year I went to the Jazz Fest in Saskatoon and was pleasantly surprised by the city’s energy. From the moment I arrived I felt inspired in every way – from the musical vitality that had my heart (and feet) dancing, to the welcoming locals who took time out to give me the scoop on every ‘must-see’ show of the week – I fell in love with the people and the place. Charming and surprisingly captivating with its eclectic shops, restaurants and facilities, I discovered Saskatoon to be a perfect blend of nature and nurture, all within a beautiful city landscape. And with the stories locals told me about all the world class events taking place over the summer months, I know I will be back soon to experience them all.

DISH // FOOD TRUCKS

A mobile dining exploration

Scratching the surface of Edmonton's ever-growing food truck scene gerling potatoes, marinated onions, crumbled Gouda, a very smoked tomato and a perfectly soft farm egg. I love a dish that puts together so many great flavours and textures so adeptly, and the serving was surprisingly filling.

// Meaghan Baxter

T

o say there has been an upsurge in food-truck activity in Edmonton over the past couple of years is to both overstate the obvious and to put things mildly. Quite simply, food trucks have become a part of our civic fabric in almost no time. Not only is there suddenly a crazy preponderance of mobile eateries, there's a crazy preponderance of food-truckrelated events like the various What the Truck?!-type events popping up around downtown and environs. Food trucks struck a prominent profile at last year's Taste of Edmonton and rolling vegan take-out window Sailin' On (@SailinOn780) single-handedly serviced the first-ever High Plains Music Festival at the end of May, with coowner Garrett Kruger taking a break from his grill duties to pound out a headlining Saturday set with the Allovers. More trucks to try Follow each of them on Twitter or Facebook to keep up with locations, events and menus. The Act Out & About: The Next Act pub, on wheels. (@TheActFoodTruck) Battista's Calzone Co: The real deal when it comes to this Italian favourite. (@BattistaCalzone) Big City Sandwich: Fresh, made-to-order gourmet sandwiches. (@bigcitysandwich):

The amazing thing is the almost instantaneous appearance of incredible variety and a serious level of food integrity on display across this veritable sea of resto-mobiles, which made getting a reasonable grasp on a few highlights in the space of a week nighimpossible yet utterly convenient. And the availability of pertinent facts about daily offerings via social media meant I could gain a good grasp of what I could have for lunch from the comfort of my lazy ass. Having been wowed a year or so ago by a truly scrumptious Robby Burns Day event presented by Nomad Mobile Kitchen, I was excited to make the acquaintance of their truck, which I found parked on Rice Howard Way. Their menu (which you can keep track of @nomadmobile) relies on locally sourced ingredients and circles back on crowd favourites like mac 'n Bo Thai: Serves up authentic Thai cuisine. Carnival Cravings: All of your carnival favourites packed into one truck.(@carnivalcraving) Drift: Creative, gourmet sandwiches made with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. (@driftfoodtruck) Eva Sweet: Authentic liege Belgian waffles to satisfy your sweet tooth. (@ evasweetwaffles) Fat Franks: The street-meat stalwart of Edmonton. (@FatFranksDogs)

cheese, grilled meatloaf, perogies, jambalaya and smoked pork products. For my first attempt, I sampled the porchetta sandwich with apple slaw ($7.50) and molasses iced tea ($2). Anyone who knows (and loves!) Schwartz's Deli in Montréal knows that fat sometimes serves as a condiment, and Nomad's house-smoked pork belly/loin is a testament to this glorious fact (which might put the odd person off, but one can't cater strictly to the odd). Abundant, juicy pork slices are topped with a crisp slaw of green apple matchsticks, cabbage and celery seed on a fresh, tasty roll with an assertive house pickle on the side. The molasses iced tea was a great idea—not too sweet, but earthy and refreshing. I was impressed enough to go back for the kale salad ($9), in which baby kale is tossed together with cold finFilistix: Bold fusion flavours. Think things like pork belly with pineapple salsa. (@ Filistix) Funky Pickle: Innovative twists on the old pizza pie. The Lingnan: The restuarant's been around for 60 years, and now one of Edmonton's go-to Chinese spots is on the streets. La Poutine: All poutine, all the time.(@ La_Poutine_) Molly's Eats: Flavours of the world all in one place. (@MollysEats)

The next day I chased down the Bully Food Truck (@BullyTruck) to a spot in front of the Standard Life Building, where a long line was starting to form. It's easy to see why. Bully appears to be slathering and smothering things, whether their bacon-and-beef hot dog, their Philly cheesesteak or the item I ordered: two slabs of grilled meatloaf ($8), which were somewhere between slathered and smothered with mushroom-whiskey sauce. That itself was every bit as good as it sounds (and rather filling), but it came paired with a creamy dilled red potato salad and some marinated onions to break up the richness with their vinegary snap. Bully also does delicious, highly portable desserts like their peanut butter cups (three for $3)—house-made cookie cups filled with peanut better and capped with chocolate. In an attempt to counter the outright meatiness of that lunch, I decided to try the falafel ($7) from Little Village (@LittleVillageFT), a largely Greekthemed outfit offering mostly grilled things in pitas and buns, with lemon potatoes and bougatsa (a custard tart) to round things out. The falafel was really tasty, the eponymous orbs crispy on the outside but moist and melty on the inside, expertly spiced and well-lavished with garlicky tzatziki. It could have used a little panache in the adornments department, as it only came with shredded green cabbage and red onion. My week-long food truck rampage wound up at the Food Fighter (@ tff_foodtruck), the name of which I must confess I'm not sure I understand. Certainly my stomach's interest Native Delights: Edmonton's first truck featuring Aboriginal cuisine. (@NativeDelights) Quick Meal: Mediterranean fare ranging from traditional to contemporary, like donair poutine. (@edmquickmeal) Smokehouse BBQ: Meat, meat and more meat—how does a bacon bomb sandwich sound? (@SmokehouseBB)

was piqued when I saw people walking away from its big orange-and-blue bus bearing foil pouches bulging with delicious-looking sandwiches. I opted for the eggplant parmigiana ($8), the name of which has always implied to me the centrality of cheese to its preparation. The Food Fighter begs to differ (+$1 for cheese). I also had some hot peppers added (+50 cents) from a list that included sautéed onions, mushrooms and bell peppers. The Food Fighter was having a banner day, which meant things took a little longer than they might at off-peak times, with one person on the till and the proprietor valiantly manning the grill. But I felt well-rewarded for my patience. Slices of breaded eggplant fried to a delectable interior creaminess had been shellacked with tomato sauce and melted into a big crusty roll with mozza and banana peppers in my honour. It was so hot I could barely carry it, much less eat it, but when I could, I really got it all over my face // Meaghan Baxter

(note to self: take more napkins next time). The repast proved quite satisfying both as a lunch and a capper to a week of fine mobile dining. More satisfying yet is that I feel I've just scratched the surface of Edmonton's moveable feast scene. I may never be able to look at another brown bag again. SCOTT LINGLEY

Not the first fruit you would guess might go in a beer, but actually, it's quite the rage these days. The first grapefruit beer around these parts was Steigl Radler (which I reviewed last year). Officially, it is a beer shandy, as it is half beer and half grapefruit juice and it tastes eerily like Mountain Dew. It doesn't quite reach my standard for an admirable beer, but I have to give it full credit for its assertive citrusy, refreshing grapefruit character. However, this year Alley Kat has

jumped into the fray with its summer seasonal, Summer Squeeze Grapefruit Ale. As the name implies, they add real grapefruit juice to add a tart, citrusy character to the beer. The aroma has the most unbelievable grapefruit character—it's like you just cut into one. In the flavour, the beer and the fruit share equal billing. A soft, clean malt base is followed by a ruby red grapefruit citrus fruitiness. It has a medium body and a delicate malt sweetness. The finish is a bit watery, but that is nitpicking. The beer is an impressive balancing of fruit and beer. What fruit is more quintessentially prairie than the saskatoon berry? This tiny berry, rather than be content with playing second fiddle to the plumper, more popular blueberry, instead thumbs its nose at it

and offers an earthier, sharper, more concentrated, intense flavour that is perfect for pies and the like. Well, it turns out it can work in beer, too. Big Rock has released Purple Gas in their summer canned mixed pack. Why such an odd name? Well, the prairie boys and girls among you will know the subsidized gas provided to farmers has long been dyed purple to distinguish it from nonsubsidized fuel. The beer's aroma is subdued with only a hint of berry. The body is quite light and the flavour offers a honey sweetness and an earthy fruitiness. The finish is moderately sweet but not heavy or cloying. The fruit is present but not dominant. I might consider the base beer a bit boring, but they wisely opted to add agave syrup to it as well, which gives the beer both more body and a pleasant counterbalance to the tart saska-

toon berry. If not complex, it is interesting. Do you feel like a four-way this summer? No, seriously. In one of the more inspired interpretations of fruit beer, BC's Howe Sound Brewing has produced a wheat beer with not one, but four different fruits in it. And they are not your ordinary run-of-the-mill fruits, either. They have added mango, passionfruit, raspberry and pomegranate to create a truly original flavour. The base beer is light and sharp, like most standard wheat ales. However, the mixture of fruit flavours creates a multi-dimensional quality to the beer. The aroma is tropical and sweet, while the beer is quite dry and sharp overall with a noted citrus and tropical fruit edge to it. No one fruit jumps out at you. It is the synergistic effects of all four together that create the impression, as they have appropriately contrasting characters. For a light-bodied summer ale, it has a lot going on. Fruit isn't just for salads anymore. There is a wide range of fruit beer to satisfy almost any palate. So this summer, put a little fruit in your beer.

beautifully varied spectrum of colour ranging from almost orange to deep magenta. Accordingly, the aromas and flavours range from bright and fresh berry fruits to deep and earthy licorice and herbs. Rosé wines are meant to be consumed immediately upon release; they don't benefit from aging. Serve them at a cooler temperature than a red wine, but warmer than a white. However, if it's a hot day they are perfectly fine poured straight from the fridge. Rosé is very food-friendly wine, due to its embodiment of qualities from both white and red wine—the high acidity and bright flavours make rosé a natural partner to vegetarian pasta dishes and seafood, as well as all lightly seasoned chicken and pork. Some rosés are a bit offdry, making them able to handle dishes with a bit of sweetness like salads dressed with fruits, candied nuts and/or goat cheese, as well as foods that are a bit spicy. Off-dry rosé is also one of very few wines that doesn't taste terrible with garlicky foods, which means it can stand beside hummus, garlic aioli and other pungent dishes. And of course rosé is wonderful on its own, toasting the summer sun. V

Homemade ice cream made easy

T

hanks to sites like Pinterest, many of us have begun to fill boards with cute little DIY projects we'll more than likely never try, or if we do, they have a very good chance of turning out nothing like the lovely, vintage-haze photo we so excitedly pinned. Among the doable variety of DIY ideas is ice cream, and no, it's not as complicated as it may seem. Sure, you could go down to your favourite ice-cream shop and pay for a scoop—or five—but think of the endless possibilities that come with creating your own. You can actually try out all of those ridiculous flavour combinations you wish ice-cream shops carried, but never do. To get you started, Tom Ursino of Pinocchio Italian Ice Cream Co has some tips and a recipe to try at home. "Making ice cream is just a matter of beating cream, eggs, sugar and flavours together while mixing frequently as it freezes," Ursino explains. "It can be done by hand, but you will need four to five hours to do so. You can get small electric ice cream makers for home, which will save you time and effort, and it will produce a smoother, creamier result. It's the blending and whisking that will give the ice cream the creamy, smooth finish we associate with a quality ice cream." Ursino notes that when making homemade ice cream, the ingredients should be chilled before being combined in a freezer-safe container that is deep enough to allow adequate mixing room—in other words, so you don't end up with one giant mess. The container you choose should also have a lid that fits snugly and securely over it. Once it is filled with ingredients, it should be placed in the coldest part of the freezer, if possible, for about one hour.

Ursino continues that once time is up, take the container out, scrape the frozen ice cream from the edges of the container and whisk or stir it all with a fork. Cover the container again and repeat the freezing and stirring process twice more. Once the ice cream is made, Ursino cautions that it should be consumed within a few days for optimal freshness. Any longer and you will start to get ice crystals forming, which is the separation of ingredients. He also advises to put wet wax paper flush against the ice cream to help prevent separation. The less air space in contact with the product, the longer it will last. This is the general method required for homemade ice cream, which of course can be modified with whichever flavour combinations you choose. Below, Ursino has provided one of his favourites to try. New York Cheesecake Ice Cream (Lemon version) What you will need (Makes approximately one-and-a-half litres): 8 oz cream cheese Finely grated zest and juice of 1 unwaxed lemon 1/3 cup fine sugar 2 egg yolks 1 cup heavy cream, whipped 4 Tbsp butter (unsalted), melted 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs Beat all of the ingredients together— except the graham cracker crumbs and

cool. W h e n t h e ice cream has been stirred a few times, add the crumb mixture and stir into the ice cream. Don't over-stir if you want a ripple effect. Approximately two stirs of the mixture will achieve the ripple effect. Within two hours you should have your firm, finished product that's ready to serve. Remember to take out the product for about 10 minutes for a proper serving temperature, as that brings out the flavours and will not freeze your palate. For other cheesecake flavours you can substitute the lemon for the following (add these after second stirring in freezer): Strawberry Cheesecake: chopped ripe strawberries.

Animals of the River Valley —most live there year-round unless they've migrated somewhere much warmer, but it's really not until the summer months that the majority of Edmontonians venture down to the banks of the Saskatchewan River for some fun and recreation. Below are some of the forest friends you might encounter there and some tips and facts you might not have know about them.

Downy Woodpecker You'll know them when you hear them, but if you're only going by sight, they're black and white and the male has a red patch on the back of his head. Pecking's pretty much their life as they do it to attract a mate, let other's know their tree is taken, find some lunch or build a nest.

Owls Ladies leave your messy buns at home! Unless you like having an owl swoop down to pick up that "rodent" on your head. Other than that, see how many varieties of owls you can spot in the River Valley, like Great Horned, Barred and Snowy. They stick together as a family until the end of the summer, so you may see more than one of these birds of prey at once. Beavers Keep an eye on Fido, even in off-leash areas. Dogs have been known to go after swimming beavers, but beavers are tough—they cut down trees with their teeth!—and will definitely fight back. Don't let your dog loose when beavers are nearby.

Coyotes All across North America coyotes are becoming urban animals, and it's easier to co-exist with them than to try and move them elsewhere. If you see one, act as intimidating as possible by raising your arms and shouting so that they continue to keep their distance from humans, according to edmontonurbancoyotes.ca.

Geese They are aggressive! Just give them their space and don't feed them. If they become dependant on humans it will delay their migration. Plus, stale crackers and bread have little nutritional value for birds anyway. This includes ducks and gulls.

Hares Baby bunnies might be super cute, but if you take them home because you don't see the mama around, you're actually kidnapping them. A mother hare leaves her babies for most of the day so her scent won't attract predators.

REBECCA MEDEL

Deer These guys are not Bambi, and if they feel you're too close and they have no room to flee, you're gonna get charged and it's gonna hurt! Don't approach fawns either; the mother is always within close proximity to her baby.

Garter Snakes The three species of garter found in Alberta are not dangerous for humans, but don't take them home— they belong in the wild. And if you see that little forked tongue sticking out, the snake is just checking the air for chemicals in food or pheromones.

PREVUE // ROADS

The road best travelled Driving the Icefields Parkway

T

he Icefields Parkway is one of the most spectacular stretches of road one could hope to travel. Adorned by peaks, waterfalls, glaciers and wildlife viewing opportunities, visitors travelling the 230 kilometres from Jasper to Lake Louise will want to give themselves plenty of time to take it all in. Here are some hot-spots that will make the question "are we there yet?" all but obsolete. Athabasca Falls 32 km south of Jasper At 23 metres high the Athabasca Falls are not the highest falls in the Rockies, the amount of water rushing through these quartz and limestone formations makes seeing Athabasca Falls a must for first time visitors. The rushing water has carved intricate features into the rock, including potholes and caverns. The mist deposted on the rocks from the Athabasca River makes them slippery and dangerous. Stay behind the railing and use caution—people who have ignored this advice have fallen in. Surviving such a fall is highly unlikely. Kerkeslin Goat Lick 38 km south of Jasper Mountain goats typically live high up in the alpine, where their sure-footedness on steep and rocky terrain helps them avoid predators. But few mountain goats can resist coming down to feed on this mineral rich silt deposit, which happens to be right beside the highway. Although this is one of the best wildlife viewing points in the park, it can also be the most dangerous. Pull well off the road, stay in your car, never feed or approach wildlife and don't linger, so that others can enjoy the experience too.

Via an ice walk or ride in a Ice Explorer, tourists can see just how far the slow-flowing tongue of ice has melted in the last 125 years. Take caution and do not cross the barriers on the glacier.

SPRUCE ASPEN HAZELWOOD Duffy's Challenge is an executive par 3 golf course located on the south slope of the Glory hills only minutes north of Stony Plain, Alberta. These hills and ponds create the landscape for a beautiful challenging round of golf. Many of the18 holes have multiple tees, which by the very nature of a par 3 change those holes dramatically.

Duffy's Challenge is located 33 kilometers west of Edmonton city limits on highway 16 (Yellowhead) to highway 779 (Stony Plain overpass) then north on 779 and 7 Kilometers to our entrance.

These are the names of our nine hole runs, which will be grouped together differently every day. You can golf here three days in a row and never face the same series of shots.

Established in 1924, a Bill Robinson design featuring tight fairways winding through rolling hills and heavily wooded areas of poplar and spruce. We have a fully stocked CPGA Pro Shop that features a wide range of golf clothing, accessories or equipment. After the game, relax in our licensed Club House or outdoor Patio area. Tournament facilities include a separate banquet house with seating for 160 inside, patio and barbeque area outside. Located one and a half hours south of Edmonton and 2 km west of town makes the Innisfail Golf Club handy to access and a truly pleasant treat to experience.

ADVENTURE // PADDLE BOARDING

Paddling towards fitness and fun Stand-up paddle boarding continues to grow in popularity

'S

tand-up paddling: anywhere there's water." That's Warren Currie's motto when it comes to trying out stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) in Edmonton. And having tried it everywhere from the City Hall fountain to giant puddles along the freeway after a storm, he's proof it can be done. Now the fastest growing sport in the world—and not just for water sports— SUP has quickly become one of the most unique and popular sports in Edmonton over the last few years. Currie is the owner of The Easy Rider and is largely responsible for the current surge in SUP popularity, having brought the sport back with him after a 2006 trip to Hawaii where he tried it for the first time. Since then he's been funnelling his passion for the sport into educating others about the fitness and pure fun of an activity that's actually perfect for Edmonton's flat-water environment. "[Part of the reason] why the sport is growing worldwide so fast—especially on flat water lakes and calm water as opposed to waves—is because it's easy," Currie explains. "I can teach anybody to

On your boards, get set, go! //

do it properly in under 15 minutes. My mom and dad, who are 73 and 75, do it up at their lake cabin. Anybody can do the sport. Ability wise, as long as you can walk and stand up, you can do it." Similar to surfboarding in some ways, SUP requires the rider to balance on a long board while controlling their movement with the use of a kayak-like paddle. Currie provides regular flat-water demos throughout the entire year: at West Edmonton Mall water park during the winter, and at local lakes such as Telford Lake in Leduc and Hermitage Park in the north-east end of Edmonton in the summer. Registrants need only bring a $10 donation for a local charity, and while they're welcome to use their own boards if they have one, Currie is well equipped with his own demo fleet of 30 boards for the public to try. More experienced riders can also try out Easy Rider's tours of the River Valley and their races, with this year's sixth annual SUP Cup race set to take place on August 24 – 25. The sport's easy-to-learn nature and increase in popularity has caused other

SUP companies to pop up in Edmonton in recent years, including aquatic safety and certification company Waterman 5. Along with classes dedicated to learning how to do SUP, Waterman 5's most popular program is their SUP fitness class, which involves a combination of calisthenics, yoga and plyometrics while on paddleboards in the water. Waterman 5 owner Sean Nickerson credits the thorough and effective nature of the workout as the reason for the class's popularity, which they conduct on Lake Summerside in the summer and in the indoor pool at the Royal Glenora Club in the winter. "It's very agility-based, it requires a lot of core [and] back muscles. So if you think about it as an entire body or a more holistic approach, it's not just legs, it's not just upper body or just paddling. It really is all about the entire core, which is something that traditionally, people can't get at a regular one-hour workout or anything like that," Nickerson says. Lake Summerside is a particularly good spot to try SUP for the first time because while most lakes in Edmonton are storm water management lakes, Sum-

merside was specifically built to provide residents with a recreational space for activities like fishing, swimming and water sports. Nickerson points to the lake's cleaner, warmer water and less turbulent water flow for making it a safe place to learn the basics of the sport. But if the promise of exercise, competition and fun aren't enough to entice you to try SUP, Currie's pretty sure the sport's cool-factor will. "I've been in this industry a long time so sometimes I forget, but everybody wants to surf. You see a picture or video of a guy surfing—who doesn't want to do that? I mean, you can see a picture of a guy 20 feet in the air on a dirt bike and go, 'Oh, that's cool, but no, I'll never want to do that.' Whereas a guy surfing, it's like, 'If he falls, it's water. No big deal.' So that's a really big driving factor," says Currie. "A lot of people like it not only because is it so easy, but you're also standing on water. I don't want to get all biblical, but it's that walking on water kind of mentality." ALANA WILLERTON

Requirements for bicycles:

Overlooked Laws: Bicycles are considered vehicles. This means cyclists are held accountable for their actions just as motorists are. Cyclists must obey all road laws followed by cars. Bicycles are permitted on any roadway in Edmonton, including the Yellowhead and Whitemud. All cyclists under the age of 18 are required by law to wear an approved helmet. Bicycles are required to be equipped with a bell and a white headlight for nighttime use. Bicycles must ride single file at all times. Only one person is allowed per bike, unless it is properly equipped to carry more than one passenger. Cyclists must always yield to pedestrians. Cyclists must sound some type of audible warning device, such as a horn or bell, before passing other bikes or pedestrians on shared-use paths. If an audible warning is sounded behind you, always move to the right to allow the cyclist to pass you. A bicycle is permitted to be ridden on a sidewalk as long as it has a wheel diameter of 50 cm or less. However, it is not recommended that adults cycle on sidewalks. Cyclists should always dismount their bicycles and walk it across crosswalks and sidewalks that are not designated as shared-use.

98

By law, all bicycles on city streets must be equipped with the following: a bell brakes that will effectively lock wheels on dry, clean, level pavement a white headlamp, a red tail lamp and a red rear reflector when cycling at night While not required, any bicycles pulling a trailer of any kind are recommended to be equipped with a flag.

Fitting a helmet: Place the helmet on your head so it is level, front to back Helmets should sit one to two finger widths (approximately 3 cm) above your eyebrows Helmets should fit snugly. To ensure a good fit, add or remove sizing pads as necessary. The helmet should not move when you shake your head. Straps should be adjusted so they form a "V" just below and in front of your earlobes. Only one finger should fit between the chin strap and your chin. Ensure your helmet can be removed only by undoing the chin strap. Helmet fit should be checked regularly.

ADVERTORIAL

Move over, Bourbon Street Here in Edmonton, the French Quarter is revitalizing! Get your French on with a taste of the West! The French Quarter already offers a multitude of French retail stores, restaurants and coffee shops, as well as educational and cultural centres. Did you know that 10 000 French speakers live within 10 minutes of the Quarter, with most being in the Bonnie Doon area? This community, including Marie-Anne-Gaboury Street, is truly the heart of Edmonton’s French neighbourhood. If you’re visiting for the first time, stay and discover the Quarter’s many shops, restaurants, and services. As the business community organizes itself and joins with the existing cultural elements of this community, the French Quarter will be able to offer much more to resident, business members and all Edmontonians. People visiting the city are also welcome to come and experience French culture in the French Quarter. With the French Quarter Business Revitalization Zone, this area will boom. Businesses, cultural institutions, and the community will work together to help the French Quarter grow, and to attract locals and other tourists to the area. The French Quarter wants to continue showcasing its unique character and vibrant French community as it expands and revitalizes. Business and culture are the two main aspects of the Business Revitalization Zone. For businesses, the Zone offers a vibrant community in which to operate. With increasing numbers of cultural activities, the business district will have increased opportunities to connect with Edmontonians. Some businesses are already offering events. Earth’s General Store, one of the members of the French Quarter, offers Earth Day celebrations. Sidewalk sales and special events will also take place at Bonnie Doon Mall and along Whyte Avenue. These will certainly have a French cultural flavour to them. Many residents of the Bonnie Doon community speak French, as do staff members at businesses in the area. Stores such as Safeway, Sears and Target see the value of recruiting team members who speak French. Want to try a new farmers’ market in town? How about coming to the French Quarter Market? This is a new initiative by La Cité Francophone, with the collaboration of the Business Revitalization Zone! As of June 16th, La Cité Francophone will offer a farmers’ market on Sundays from noon until 5pm. Located comfortably in La Cité, this market will run year-round. As language and culture are intertwined, both are essential to a vibrant cultural community. The French Quarter is proud to offer festivals and many events in French. The French Quarter is home to many such offerings already, but there’s always room for more! All Edmontonians are welcome to come to the French Quarter to check out the many cultural activities that take place year-round. In fact, the French Quarter is also introducing some new additions this year. If you have out-of-town visitors with you this summer, consider bringing them to the French Quarter. They will have a unique experience here!

What is more Edmontonian than spending two weeks from the summer at the Fringe Festival? This year, people can expand their Fringe experience into the French Quarter. This summer, the French Quarter will offer four locations as BYOVs. 25 plays, with over 200 performances, will be performed at these locations: La Cité, Rutherford School and Le Campus Saint-Jean. Buskers will also perform at La Cité Francophone, and a Box Office will be onsite. The French Quarter is definitely going to be a vibrant component of the Fringe, as 10 000 to 20 000 people will likely visit. Come to the area for the Fringe, but stay as long as you want. Such additions only enhance everything already happening in the French Quarter. The Flying Canoe Adventure is another popular festival in this location. For example, 6000 patrons recently enjoyed the Mill Creek Adventure Walk, an event put on by La Cité Francophone. La Cité Francophone hosts 36 community associations that serve Edmonton and the entire province. All year, La Cité Francophone plays host to several local theatre companies. With its 200-seattheatre, La Cité is the destination for people who wish to see performances by Workshop West Theatre, Firefly Theatre, L’UniThéâtre, and more. Even with all these new activities, the old foundations of the French Quarter are as relevant as ever. When the Oblate Brothers founded the Collège SaintJean in 1911, they set off the development of a lively French Quarter that continues to grow. They also created the educational institution that is now the University of Alberta’s Campus Saint Jean, the only French campus West of Winnipeg. The French Quarter and surrounding areas offer French schools in the Catholic and Public school boards, plus French-immersion programs. The ability to communicate in with others in French is an important feature to those who live, work and attend events in the French Quarter. With the implementation of the Business Revitalization Zone, and with increased activity in the Zone, the French Quarter will only grow as a tourist destination. All Edmontonians and visitors to the city are welcome to come to the French Quarter to experience the best of French culture. As businesses, residents, and cultural organizations work together, this area will continue to flourish.

he grass is green, the leaves have budded, and summertime in the City of Champions is in full swing. Start the season off right with your festival finery of silk, denim and leather to attend the many essential local events from Heritage Days to Folk Festival. So grab

your mosquito repellent, a blanket and be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.

STYLE // MAKEUP

The colours of summer Makeup for hot summer days and nights

W

hen it comes to summer makeup, simplicity is key, but it's also the time to experiment with colour and textureâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;especially shimmer and dewy, natural-looking skin. Local makeup artist Amber Prepchuk cautions to choose a focal feature and commit to it. For example, if you do dramatic eye makeup, keep everything else simple so it doesn't become overpowering. It's easy to get caught up in "colour rules," and Prepchuk notes there is colour theory involved in makeup application and it can be followed if desired, but by no means is it a concrete rule. "If you apply it beautifully it's going to look beautiful and if you own it, you're going to rock it," she adds. "My biggest tip to anybody who wants to play with makeup is: if it makes you feel good then I think you should be able to wear it." With that in mind, Prepchuk has put together a couple of ideas to get you on your way to a new summer look.

This is a shadow that you can wear all over your lid for a pop of colour that's going to give you a wash of metallic finish, which is really in for summer. I would use it as a wash of colour for day and at night I'd pack it on a bit stronger and maybe throw something deeper in the crease to give it a bit more of a smoke.

This is going to be what I would call a cheek and lip combo. What's nice about this is it is emollient so you can really apply it in a soft wash. If you wanted to kick it up, that's when you'd add a lip liner and possibly a lip stick underneath, but because it's starting off so emollient you can wash it on and call it a day. It doesn't have to look strong.

This is a cheek highlighter. It's all about the glow and we do live in a really dry climate, so any time we can bring something into the cheek that kind of lifts and highlights it's important. You can just wash over the cheek and that would be a great daytime look. You could add a bit of a darker blush with it for nighttime.

This is a cream shadow. I prefer it on the high points of the face, so the brow bone or the cheek bone of inner corner [of the eye], things that aren't going to get too hot and creasy.

This is a mineralized lipstick. It's really nice because it's moisturizing and gives a bit of colour and doesn't bleed. This is a good daytime colour, but for night you could add a lipliner or you could even add the purple gloss that's hanging out beside it. You don't need to wear it everywhere if it's not something you feel comfortable wearing: just a little bit in the inner corner or do a candlelight eye where you've got a pop of the yellow in the centre and then a darker colour on either side.

Is a little bit more pigmented, so I feel like it's more for the scenester who wants to really have that heroinechic-looking eye. If you use it gently with a soft, fluffy brush dusted in the crease it also looks really pretty.

It's just really subtle and it looks good on every skin type so it's a really good daytime glow and it catches the light in this way that makes you look like you've been in the sun so you can wear it on your cheeks if you want to.

It's either all sparkly or all matte or all creamy these days, so anything that's going to be dramatic with a sparkle is a summertime finish.

This one's a mineralized shadow. It has a bit more of a metallic purple and then a coppery finish. What's nice about mineral products, is you can wear them wet or dry. If you spritz your brush with a face spray of some sort or a small amount of water and you apply your mineralized products it's going to go on more intense and it's going to last a little bit longer.

Purple is the new red. This is a really nice option because it's a sheer gloss that you can wear on its own but you can also add a lip liner to it. If you add a lipstick underneath you can be even more dramatic. I always be careful when I'm putting a gloss over a deep lip to use it mostly in the centre [of your lips], especially with a sparkle so you're not overwhelming your face.

Anything that's double-ended is going to probably offer something that's going to have colour that's going to last and a gloss that's going to moisturize. Obviously it's good for daytime as well if you don't want to touch your lips up a lot. It's a bit more metallic and what's nice about that is, again, it's more daytime, but if you were going to do a really dark focus on the eyes for night you'd want to stick to a nude for the lips.
