It’s the long weekend and whether you are staying in the city or head out of town, we’re positive this weekend is going to be good vibes only!
Based on the forecast, the sun will be shining all weekend long! (If you missed our blog post on how to Beat the Heat -make sure to check it out here!)
August Long Weekend is one of the best long weekends of the year and it’s because on the first Monday of August each year, we in Alberta celebrate Heritage Day! Although it’s not a statutory holiday for everyone, many people in Alberta use the day to celebrate the province’s heritage. It’s also known to be one of the most eventful, with all of the festivals happening in the city! Here’s a few that we plan to check out this weekend that are family friendly and free!
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 cool street performers, choosing a perfect summer patio or searching for trendy fashion on the mainstreet of Inglewood.
Event Location: Mainstreet Inglewood
Date & Time: Aug 5th, 11:00AM to 6:00PM
