EDMONTON - For some, the summer solstice may simply mean a little extra sunshine, but for Alberta’s Estonians it’s a festival that rivals Christmas.

On Wednesday, the sun will be up for 17 hours, two minutes and 48 seconds, making it the longest day of the year. In Estonia, the day is known as Jaanipäev, and in its honour Alberta’s Estonian community is throwing a two-day party this weekend, complete with boat cruise, choir, bison dinner and a bonfire. The event is expected to draw about 160 people
