From festivals to K-Days, there are lots of events to fill your Edmonton summer. But here's 10 capital locations, in no particular order, you might also want to check out. This historic ride showcasing some of the best views of the city in an experience all kept on track by local volunteers. This ribbon of green features 20 major parks and 160 kilometres of pathways maintained year round. Top athletes hurry hard to the Saville Community Sports Centre to rock this Canadian pastime.
The K-Days Parade is back and, with the theme of Canada 150, promises to be bigger than ever. Stake out your piece of pavement along the Jasper Avenue parade route starting at 10 a.m. Friday. Floats, antique cars and the marching bands will head west from 97th Street to 108th Street. The parade kicks off K-Days, headquartered at Northlands Park, and runs until July 30. The midway, entertainment, fireworks are all back, along with a new powwow competition and rodeo action.
Dale Kirkland calls himself the steward of the "hidden gem" tucked away in the parkland forest east of Edmonton. But that gem, Elk Island National Park, is a little less hidden this season. "We're seeing international first timers and other parts of Canada first timers and interestingly enough we've heard of a number of first timers from the capital region," said Kirkland, the park's superintendent.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
