#YEG Kaleido Family Arts Festival Rocks!

Message From The Artistic Director
Christy Morin, Founder / Executive Director, Arts on the Ave Edmonton Society

Welcome to our 9th Kaleido Family Arts Festival (September 12 - 14). This unique festival has been built on community, passion, and creativity. Each year, this festival shares how the arts and community together bring joy, laughter and friendship to a neighbourhood that had lost vision of its beauty, history and identity. Its spirit was lost…we are thrilled to be part of the rebuilding of the Alberta Avenue District. Rebuilding takes commitment for the long haul, and I am happy to share that we are here and not leaving. Thank you to each of you, our partners, community supporters, production team, volunteers, performers, neighbours, and funders for believing with us that change starts with one smile, one volunteer hour or one coffee shared with another.

This year’s theme is Relish! Relish Kaleido! Relish your time with family and friends! Relish life on the Ave!

From our family to yours - have a wonderful time at the festival, come back and visit soon!

God Bless,
Christy Morin

#YEG City boosts road construction spending by $16.3 million

Halfway through the 2014 road construction season, Mayor Don Iveson has announced that the City will invest an additional $16.3 million on 51 additional road projects in 2014.

“Back in April, City Council renewed our commitment to road infrastructure by reallocating $27.1 million from the 2014 budget for additional roadwork this year and next,” said Mayor Iveson. “This additional investment demonstrates the aggressive approach Council is taking to renewing Edmonton’s essential roadway infrastructure.”

The City is using the additional funds to pave 25 more arterial road projects ($10 million) and 26 more neighbourhood road projects ($6.3 million) that were not on the original roadwork schedule for 2014. The 51 extra projects are spread across Edmonton, bringing the total number of road projects this year to 178. The City’s total 2014 investment in arterial and collector roads, bridges and interchanges and neighbourhood infrastructure is $431.1 million.
