Isn’t it great to have a holiday at this time of the year? Even though Family Day has been around for a few years now, it still sneaks up on us as a pleasant surprise halfway through February. Looking for something fun to motivate you to get out of the house? Here are some of Calgary’s best events:
Eau Claire Market Free Family Fun Day – This winter carnival is perfect to keep your kids entertained. Organizers are anticipating a huge turnout this year. You can expect to find an ice carving demonstration, live music and games for kids of all ages. The festivities will take place on February 16th from 11am until 3pm.
Dinosaurs in Motion – This larger-than-life exhibit makes its Canadian debut at Telus Spark from now until summertime. The display includes 14 life-size sculptures created from recycled materials. Youngsters are encouraged to be creative by drawing the dinosaurs. Also, they are urged to learn more about these great creatures from the past through the interactive demonstrations.
Penguin Walks at Calgary Zoo – The penguins are on the loose! Every day at 10am, seven of the King Penguins are let out of their enclosure and escorted by their keepers for a little stroll around the zoo. This adorable routine has become one of the zoo’s best winter attractions. King Penguins, by nature, tend to be more sedentary, but this activity has proven to improve their health and given them something special to look forward to outside the confines of their home.
Free Family Day Swimming – Why not go for a dip? Six of Calgary’s public aquatic centres are open on Family Day from 1 – 2:30 and 3 – 4:30 in the afternoon. Participating locations include Bob Bahan Aquatic & Fitness Centre, Canyon Meadows Aquatic Centre, Glenmore Aquatic Centre, Renfrew Aquatic & Recreation Centre, Shouldice Aquatic Centre, and Thornhill Aquatic & Rec Centre.
