It’s a long weekend, or an extra long weekend for some kids in school this week. With the long weekend, you’re going to need a few extra activities and experiences to fill the moments between stuffing the turkey and eating delicious pie.
Here’s what to do with the kids this weekend in Calgary:
Thanksgiving Swim and Skate for Free | Various Locations
On October 10th, you can swim and skate for free, at various locations around Calgary. It’s a wonderful way to get out of the house, and let’s face it, work off some of that pie. Check out the full list of places that you can experience for free, right here.

Harvest Pumpkin Hunt | Butterfield Acres
Off we go on the tractor-pulled hay wagon, rolling through the crunchy fall leaves just hoping to find some… kid-sized pumpkins! Once we find some, we’ll bring them back and decorate them into creative pumpkin-head masterpieces! While the glue sets up, everyone can have a visit with their favorite animal friends in the farmyard. It’s harvest fun at it’s best! This makes one of those ‘parties to remember’! And of course, all the children have their wonderful pumpkin to take home!
When: all weekend long
