Our family spent Family Day 2013 at the Calgary Zoo this year. We enjoyed the animals, as always, but it was a bitter cold day. If only I could have sneaked a picture of my husband to show you. He wore a grey wool baseball cap underneath a faux-fur trapper hat underneath his North Face hooded jacket and it was all cinched tightly around his face with the drawstring. Like I said, it was cold!
Family Day at the Calgary Home and Garden Show
There is another Family Day coming to Calgary that will be a ton of fun and much warmer since it is indoors! I’m talking about Family Day at the Calgary Home & Garden Show. Here are a few features our family is excited about:
– Bob the Builder is returning! Max is very excited about that.
– Calgary’s food trucks will be pulling up to the Calgary Home & Garden Show to help you refresh and refuel!
– The Calgary Zoo will host interactive, animal-themed play sessions!
– Crave Cupcakes will share the secret to the perfect cupcake!
– Ambulance Tours with Calgary EMS and Medic Moose!
– Bricks 4 Kidz lego house-building!
– Tattoo artists!
– Free goodie bags for parents and tots, and much more!
Family Day will take place on Friday March 1, 2013, at 12:00 p.m. but the rest of the Home & Garden Show looks like a treat as well. Here is a small glimpse of what you can find at the show from February 28 through March 3. (Check out the full schedule of events on the Home & Garden Show website.)
– Calgary Home + Garden Show’s first ever food truck competition. Six food truck cooks battle it out by creating delicious garden party themed dishes and the two finalists will go head-to-head Saturday at 10:30 am. for a chance at the winner’s ribbon that they’ll sport throughout the show!
– Cooking presentations hosted by some of the city’s most influential chefs from MARKET Fresh Cuisine, Catch & The Oyster Bar, CRAFT Beer Market, CHARCUT, Crave Cupcakes and many more!
– Presentations from some of the industry’s hottest insiders including HGTV’s Bryan Baeumler of Leave It To Bryan and Paul Lafrance of Decked Out.
– Cultivate some garden know-how with Canada’s top outdoor experts, including Jeff de Jong, Joanne Dafoe, Pavlina Krivyand Annelise Doolaege.
I have been provided with four Calgary Home + Garden Show passes to give away to my readers. I’m also happy to be able to share a discount promo code ‘BLOG’ for those readers who don’t win passes but are still interested in attending the show.
Good luck! I hope to see you there!
