Everything old is new again! Today Northlands announced that the annual Edmonton summer fair will henceforth be named K-Days. The "K," however, won't necessarily stand for Klondike Days as it did in the halcyon days of my youth. According to the Edmonton Journal story linked above, Northlands is going to figure out a theme to surround the K-Days name.
Perhaps the annual fair could be one K long, or 1000 days. Wait, that won't work...
Perhaps the venue will extend one full kilometre.
The organizers could develop a theme of eclectic madness: Krazy Days.
Or a movie monster theme: Kong Days.
Personally, I think the fair should be called Frontier Fest or Gateway Days. But I haven't been to K-Days/Capital Ex since 1991, so my vote doesn't mean much.
Here are two photos of my brother Sean enjoying the bumper cars at Klondike Days way back in July 1982:
