There are five gorgeous weekends left before school goes back into session – and it’s important to think about how you’re going to maximize them. Here are some of our top picks for things to do with kids in Calgary, how to spend the weekend and what to do with the kiddos.
Here’s what to do with kids in Calgary this weekend –
Slide the City | 10th St and SAIT Way
Slide the City comes back to Calgary this weekend, and it’s one of those must-do events during the summer. The line-ups are worth it because you get to slide down 1,000 foot slip and slide, through the city.
When: July 30, 11-6
See a $2.99 Movie | Cineplex Theaters
The last time we took three kids to the movies it was almost $80. Make this outing a little more budget friendly and bring the kids to the Cineplex Family Favourites, $2.99 movies on Saturday mornings. This week, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is playing – a great chance to introduce your kids to a classic.
When: Saturday, 11 am
Inglewood Sunfest | Inglewood
At Sunfest, there is an activity made for all ages. This could mean a jump in the bouncer for the kids, discovering a great new band, being wowed and amazed by our cool street performers, choosing a perfect summer patio or searching for a trendy fashion; there is no shortage of things happening.
When: Saturday, 11-6
