After the year that we’ve just had, we think it’s safe to say that your Instagram could use a little ‘spice’. Luckily, Calgary’s CORE Shopping Mall has come to your aid, opening their brand new ‘Gram Garden’, an interactive display where shoppers can snap a picture or two in a series of season-perfect photo booths.

Designed with the Stampede, pride, and summer in mind, the mall now has a series of unique sets – totally free to wander and use!

Squeeze into their cotton candy tele-box or say cheese next to their larger-than-life, gnome under a gazebo of garlands and flowers! Every single one of these displays is out-of-this-world cute and made with love and care.

Also – in addition to encouraging Calgarians to strike a pose, the CORE will also be giving away a $500 gift card to one lucky ‘model,’ who tags them and uses their photos with the hashtag #GramGarden on their post. Could entering a contest be any easier? 

Now, it is important to note that these incredible displays will be updated every few weeks until September (dates below) so make sure you check them out while you can! You certainly won’t want to miss the perfect shot, friends. it’s going to be gone in a blink.
