Edmonton's Heritage Days festival celebrates the multi-cultural heritage of our city, offering local groups of varying heritage a chance to show off their culture, dance, art and food. This takes place over the 3 days of Canada's August long weekend (first weekend in August), in Edmonton's William Hawrelak part (used to be called Mayfair Park). This year was the biggest ever, with over 60 different national pavilions, and with an attendance of around 400,000.
I went down with my friend Don, to sample the exhibits, and of course the food. I left home at 11:30 A.M. and didn't get back until 6:30 P.M., so it was a fairly long day. The weather was great, however, and I wish I hadn't taken my jacket because I never needed it, after the first 15 minutes of the walk to get there.
This year I took a fair number of pictures, and several movies. I've divided the pictures up into rough categories on different pages. Links to the pages are below - click on the sample picture.
