Friday eve is here again and we are ready. Are you? This time around, we’ve got a ton of different ways you can make the most of the beautiful weather and even a few seriously tasty, relaxing events. Prepare to mark up that calendar of yours, because we’re hitting you with 10 socially distant things you can do in Calgary this weekend.
CATCH THE LYRID METEOR SHOWER
This weekend, 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. Check out the link above for 6 places where the view will take your breath away.
When: Friday, April 16th – 25th (peak on Wednesday, April 21st)
Spring has sprung and there’s sun in the forecast, which can only mean one thing. It’s golf season again, so dust off those clubs, gather up some balls, and fasten that visor then check out the link above for some of the golf courses in Calgary that are open right now.
HAVE DINNER IN THE DOME
This weekend, dine like the kings and queens that you are! Foodies In The Park are back, this time with a Royal-themed dining experience. From now 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: Until Sunday, May 16th
Where: 15979 Bow Bottom Trail SE, Calgary
Time: 5 pm, 7:05 pm, and 9:05 pm
CELEBRATE CANADIAN FILM
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 takes the top spot. Pop some popcorn, get couch cozy, and celebrate northern excellence by watching these canuck-made movies ahead of the big day (April 21st) – some of which you can check out in the link above!
TAKE A HIKE
Are the mountains are calling your name? This weekend lace up your boots, pack up the car, and head to the Rockies where trails aplenty await. Click the link above for the most beautiful hikes you can do near Calgary this spring!
HIT ONE OF CALGARY’S POP-UP PATIOS
We hope you’re hungry, ready to support local, and are optimistic about the weather this spring because Calgay’s pop-up patios are now allowed to extend outwards onto the streets. Just out the link above for more information.
INDULGE AT CALGARY’S BURGER BASH
Calgary’s food trucks are back at it, holding a tasty drive-thru but this time, you’ve only got one day to check it out. This Sunday, hit the Grey Eagle for a meaty meal from one of Calgary’s favourite mobile eateries.
When: Sunday, April 18th
Where: Overflow Parking Lot, 3777 Grey Eagle Dr.
Time: 12 pm – 6 pm
GO FOR A BIKE RIDE
After lounging our way through the winter months, we think that it’s safe to say that a lot of you are ready to stretch your legs and get back outside. One of the best ways to really make the most of the spring or summer? By taking a leisurely ride on a two-wheeler, of course! Check out the link above for the 10 best places for a bike ride in Calgary!
TRY ONE OF CALGARY’S MOST OUTRAGEOUS DESSERTS
We scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream… and cake, cookies, pies, and jello. Though many may say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, we believe it’s actually a dessert that rocks the top spot. Why? Well, eggs can’t put a smile on your face quite like a milkshake can. Check out the link above for some of our favourites.
TAKE A SELF GUIDED ART MURAL TOUR
From East to West, Calgary has some incredible art murals. Now that the weather is a little bit nicer, why not check some of them out by using the map in the link above! Take photos, get some fresh air and stretch those legs!
