May 2021 Long Weekend Activities

Happy May Long Weekend, everyone!

Here are some ideas of things to do this weekend:

  • Grey Eagle Drive In: For just $40.00 you can attend a drive-in movie event at the Grey Eagle Resort & Casino. This nostalgic activity is a great way to experience the magic of movies despite the COVID-19 restrictions, and is an excellent opportunity to get out of the house with the whole family. Learn more about what movies they are showing and get your tickets by visiting their website by clicking here.
  • Watch Storybook Theatre's new show "The Smartest Girl In The World": Avenue Calgary writes, "StoryBook Theatre is launching its newest online production over the May long weekend. Starting on May 21, you can watch The Smartest Girl in the World, which follows a pair of siblings who want to win a local TV quiz show while examining family bonds and facing life’s challenges. Tickets are available for $32 per viewing code and the show runs at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and at 2 p.m. on Sunday." Get information from Storybook Theatre's website by clicking here.
  • Attend Heritage Park's Opening Weekend: In Calgary we know it's officially spring when Heritage Park opens back up. To Do Canada writes, "the S.S. Moyie is back in the water and ready to welcome you starting May 22! Will you be sailing this summer? With more than 200 exhibits and attractions spread over 127 acres of lush parkland, Heritage Park Historical Village has a lot to offer both the history buff and the pleasure seeker. It’s the perfect balance between historical fact, adventure, discovery and fun that makes our take on the tale of Western Canadian settlement so unique." Get your tickets and more details at Heritage Park's website by clicking here. 

While many people are itching to get out of the city, Parks Canada is pleading with people not to head into the mountains to visit Banff or Canmore. May Long Weekend is one of their busiest weekends of the year, and with us still being in a pandemic, it's best to avoid those two places this weekend. City News writes, "people are being told to skip the Rockies and instead look for something to do closer to home as the pandemic continues. The mayors of Banff and Canmore are asking people to avoid visiting their towns, and the country’s parks agency says you should follow the provincial health guidelines and stay close to home."

Have a great long weekend, Calgary!
