is a city in North of Canada in provinces of Alberta
The vast tar sands of Alberta in Canada hold oil reserves six times the size of Saudi Arabia's. But this 'black gold' is proving a mixed blessing for the frontier town of Fort McMurray, fuelling both prosperity and misery. As the social and environmental toll mounts, Aida Edemariam reports on the dark side of a boom town.
Fort Mcmurray is an adventurous city surrounded by the most beautiful landscape in the west. Fort McMurray is home to mountains and ponds/lakes and a variety of wildlife to be enjoyed. The city also ranges in industrial organizations, from farming to computer analyzing. Fort McMurray, Alberta is a great place to vacation and get involved in outdoor activities!
Summer brings many festivals to the province of Alberta. Edmonton's Fringe Festival is the world's second largest after Edinburgh's. Edmonton also hosts some of Canada's largest Folk Festivals, Multicultural Festivals, and Heritage Days (to name a few). Calgary is also home to Carifest, the second largest Caribbean festival in the nation (after Caribana in Toronto). These events highlight the province's cultural diversity and love of entertainment. Most of the major cities have several performing theatre companies who entertain in venues as diverse as the Arts Barns and the Francis Winspear Centre. Although Alberta lacks a preponderance of notable large art galleries, many small galleries which focus on local artists and artisans exist in the major centres. Canadian and northern Canadian art and crafts are notable in their popularity. Local sculptors, painters, weavers and many other artisans show original works throughout the province.
