CATCH THE LYRID METEOR SHOWER
This week, look up for another spacey spectacle of meteors and madness! As long as the sky is clear, Calgarians will be able to catch the Lyrid shower between April 16th and the 25th. Want to double your chances? Maybe take a drive out of the city on April the 21st, the peak of the event.
When: Friday, April 16th – 25th (peak on Wednesday, April 21st)

WORK OUT IN ONE OF CALGARY’S PARKS
We know that hearing about another shutdown was tough, especially on those who rely on working out to stay sane. We’re living through tough times, but we’re lucky enough to live in a city with so many beautiful green spaces, and for that, we should be thankful! In fact, these grassy nooks are not only perfect for picnicking, but they’re also solid for breaking a sweat! Check out the link above for the best outdoor places to work out in Calgary.
DRIVE THROUGH ALBERTA AND TAKE IN THE SIGHTS
Grab some snacks and hit shuffle on that ‘road tunes’ playlist of yours! We live in a beautiful province and one of the easiest ways to really experience its beauty is from behind the wheel. Bundle up and start your engines – because we’ve put together a list of the 10 most scenic drives in Alberta. Click the link above for more information!
GET THE ROYAL TREATMENT
This week, dine like the kings and queens that you are! Foodies In The Park are back, this time with a Royal-themed dining experience. From April 15th until May 16th, enjoy a romantic meal under the stars in one of Bow Valley’s unique, distance-friendly, backyard garden domes – because you deserve a little royal treatment!
When: Thursday, April 15th – May 16th
Where: 15979 Bow Bottom Trail SE, Calgary
Time: 5 pm, 7:05 pm, and 9:05 pm
CELEBRATE ONE OF CALGARY’S MOST HISTORIC RESTAURANTS
Birthdays are the best days but this spring, Calgary restaurant Rouge wants to celebrate, not for a few hours, but for an entire month! In honour of its 20th anniversary, the staple spot will be launching a tasting menu compiled of crowd-pleasing appetizers, entrees and desserts from their menu since they opened in 2001.
When: Until Saturday, May 1st
Where: 1240 8th Avenue SE, Calgary
PREPARE FOR CANADIAN FILM DAY
While most would say that Easter or the beginning of spring is their favourite thing about this particular 30, we’d have to say Canadian Film Day makes our top spot. On April 21st, pop some popcorn, get couch cozy, and celebrate northern excellence by watching these canuck-made movies – some of which you can check out in the link above!
Well, how’s the week looking? Which of these things can’t you wait to do this week in Calgary. Let us know or just tag us in your adventures! Enjoy, friends!
