Calgary was coloured blue today. A thousand or so Mount Royal University students picked up some nice new white t-shirts and headed off, running and walking around the Lincoln Park campus in the city’s original colour run. Before too long they encountered a barrage of water guns laden with blue paint. Then another. And another. Soon the shirts were Jackson Pollack-like, splattered and streaked.
An anthropologist goes bananas
Anthropology student, Alex turned up in a banana suit. That went blue. He liked the colour explosion the best, at the end of the 5km trail. “The colours were flying in the air”, he said. “You couldn’t see anything with all the powder. It was great!” For his troubles, Alex and his team won the prize for the best dressed.
