Remember Edmonton 2012 New Year’s Eve?
Remember New year’s Eve several years ago? The odd-shaped pavilions on Churchill Square in downtownEdmonton New Year’s Eve at Churchill square Downtown attracted an audience of 30,000 and featured family-friendly attractions, activities, music and a spectacular fireworks display in Canada’s Festival City. This is what I wrote then:

7th Anniversary

‘Zdenko’s Corner’… it’s been seven years already!
Almost seven years ago I created my own blog: ‘Zdenko’s Corner’. Words can’t express how that silly, simple, little thing changed my life. Thanks to everyone who has read, liked, shared and commented on my posts! Other thanks to everyone who just stopped by and took a quick peek without reading or leaving comments. You all are the best!

From C2E forum
Edmonton is a newborn in terms of most European or Asian Cities. As you may notice from the following photos, the building material of choice in those days was plain red brick.

What is it like living in Edmonton
I have lived in Edmonton for over 25 years now, and I think Edmonton is slowly but surely shaping up to be the next trendy destination for many tourists. Forget the Golden Gate Bridge and other touristy destinations down south in America. Tourists should check out the High Level Bridge and North Saskatchewan River here in Edmonton!

Viva l’Italia
When a city has a Little Italy, it’s a clue there’s enough Italians culture in town. That holds true for Edmonton, which has a small, spread out Italian population and yet boasts a thriving Little Italy in the inner city of McCauley neighborhood.

Canadian Boom Town: Edmonton
A housing demand that outstrips supply is almost unheard of in the current U.S. market, but conditions are radically different in the Canadian province of Alberta, which is facing a housing shortage and rapid price acceleration.

Iconic structure arose again on original site.
The other day on my way to Shaw Convention centre I passed by the newly built ‘Alberta Hotel’ on Jasper Avenue. What an incredible building. It’s been rebuild from pieces lying in storage since the historic structure was demolished 25 years ago.

Perfect weekend to close the season in Edmonton!
The leaves are just beginning to turn yellow and the morning air was crisp, which means conditions were again ripe for Roger’s Harvest 100 km ride. You’ve done all the work through spring and summer to become fit and strong, the race season is winding down, and the whole world around you is transforming into a spectacle of color.

People watching on Edmonton promenade!
At this time of a year it might be a good thing to remind yourself on nice and warm weather we have had here during the summer and forget for a moment on showeling the snow. Last summer my wife and I were enjoying some great weather during the Fringe festival and were walking along the Whyte Avenue.

Several years ago, Vera and I decided to make the trip all the way south to USA border. It took me a long time to go back memory line and try to document this wonderfull trip through Alberta province and Western Canada, but here it is… finally.

I really like HUB Mall. I have always wished that I attended University here in Edmonton, just so I could live in the dorms upstairs and start my own pattern of pop cans in the windows.

Edmonton’s Ultimate Hardware Store on Jasper Avenue
If you talk with anyone who lived in Edmonton in the 50 years starting in 1930, they’ll attest that W.W. Arcade was the ultimate hardware store. If I really think about it, I can still smell the place and hear the squeak of the floors underfoot and, if you were in the basement, overhead. I can see the shelves piled high with an array of goods and hundreds of other items dangling from the ceilings.

Spectacular Sikh Temple on Manning Drive
This beautiful Mughal style Sikh temple is located in a relatively isolated corner of North East Edmonton, in an area called Horse Hills. I live in the neighborhood and ride my bike on the roads near the temple. You can also see this beautiful temple from the Manning drive en route to Fort Saskatchewan. It shows the architectural and cultural diversity of Edmonton.

It’s time we learn to love our great capital city
I don’t know about you, but I’m getting tired of people having nothing good to say about the city that I’ve come to love, a city that has so much to offer and so much to see, from the farmer’s markets of downtown and Old Strathcona, to the endless pathways of the tranquil river valley. Edmonton, the rightful ‘City of Champions’ may need time to grow on you, but once it does, there’s no turning back.
