Slow down in School Zones

Slow Down in School Zones

They’re ba-a-a-a-ck! After 40 years of being able to guess the out-of-towners by which cars slowed down near a school, we’ll all be doing it. Around elementary schools a school zone speed limit of 30/h is being put into place. At Family Fun Edmonton, we say it’s not a minute too soon! A 30 km/h […]

Stand Up Paddleboarding in Edmonton

Where to Stand Up Paddleboard-5

Stand up Paddleboarding (SUP) is the fastest growing sport around the world right now for good reason.  It’s easy, there’s a low learning curve, and most people can jump on a board their first time out with no previous experience or lessons.  It’s also a great family sport because parents can take turns out on […]

Chair-o-Plane Takes Off at Fort Edmonton Park

Chair-O-Planes Launches

The young man seated beside my son has a decidedly green colour. My mom sense kicks in. “Is he okay? I ask the ride attendant. “Are you okay?” I call out. A weak grin and a thumbs up does little to reassure me. “He’s going for the record.” The costumed interpreter-cum-carny doesn’t seem to think […]

FringedAndConfused_logo

The wonderful thing about Fringe plays is you never really know what you’re going to get. I have seen hilarious, shocking, heartbreaking, and beautiful things on stage.

The wording on the event listing was clear: “Recommended for audiences over 8 years old. Children under 4 will not be admitted.” An email from the production company was a little more circumspect: “Please drop me a line if you are considering  bringing a guest under four.” My dilemma was that I don’t have an eight year […]
