Although we already had a quick preview of winter in Calgary, there is still plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful fall weather. Thanksgiving is a wonderful time in the city. It’s the perfect opportunity to relax over the long weekend, enjoy a home-cooked dinner with your family, and enjoy the outdoors before winter gets the best of us. Need some fun family activities to keep the kids busy? There are several great events happening in and around Calgary during the Thanksgiving weekend.
The Delta Lodge at Kananaskis, located about an hour west of the city, is offering a special Thanksgiving package. This resort is the perfect weekend escape for a break from the city. During Thanksgiving weekend, they offer a range of family-friendly events including a dance, pumpkin carving and story time for the kids. The resort is surrounded by beautiful hiking trails that offer a mountain view that is second to none.
What could be more appropriate to celebrate the season than a visit to the Calgary Corn Maze & Fun Farm? This family-operated farm features a petting zoo, miniature golf, and a pumpkin patch. It has won the distinction of the 2014 Parents Choice Award for Best Family Attraction by the Calgary’s Child Magazine. The farm is home to the largest corn maze in Southern Alberta and each year they change the design. The farm closes for the year on October 19th, so make sure to stop by before the season ends.
Take a step back in time this Thanksgiving at Calgary’s Heritage Park. For the long weekend only, the Wainwright Hotel Dining Room will be offering a delicious three-course Thanksgiving meal with all the trimmings. Take a ride on the antique midway, and explore the Park on the nostalgic steam train. This park also closes for the season following the long weekend.
Whatever your plans, there is no shortage of fun ways to celebrate the season and enjoy the outdoors this Thanksgiving.
