Easter Fun in Calgary

Happy Easter Calgary! 

 If you have the weekend off and are looking for something fun to do with your loved ones, I’ve listed a few fun ideas to check out in and around the city. If you’re not into hunting eggs and chocolaty treats, take the time to enjoy the spectacular weather forecasted by going out and basking in the warm spring sun by taking a walk in the park or a stroll through Inglewood and perhaps having an Easter cocktail on an outdoor patio. However you choose to spend it, may this weekend be joyful, and wonderful and I hope you feel the springtime energy and sense of renewal this time of year brings.
