Here’s what to do in Calgary this weekend, with kids:

The Shawnessy Library brings books, movies, and many of their services to the community and gets people of all ages excited about reading and books.
Open Aircraft Days (All Weekend)
The number 1 wish we hear from our visitors is that they would like to sit inside one of our historical aircraft. We listened, and now’s your chance!
