May Long Weekend Activities 2020

Happy May Long Weekend, Everyone!

After weeks of shut downs and quarantine, the world is slowly starting to open back up again; including Calgary! While it is important to make sure that we continue to use precautions (wear face masks, keep 6 feet of distance whenever possible, continue to practice good hygiene, stay home if you're sick, etc.), it's becoming safer to navigate this brave new world. That being said, if you're going stir crazy and ready to get out and about, here are some ideas of things to do this weekend: 

  • BBQ from home with a local barbecue kit: Avenue Calgary writes, "Now that the weather is nice again, it’s time to break out your barbecue and start grilling. While you can, of course, pick up supplies from the grocery store, we encourage you to try one of the barbecue kits being offered by several local restaurants right now, which feature everything from Wagyu burger kits to ribeye steaks. Empire ProvisionsModern Steak and Cravings Market Restaurant are just a few of the Calgary spots offering barbecue kits right now."
  • Calgary is filled with great public art, and there are plenty of pieces you can see without leaving your car. Hop in your car and drive to some (or all) of these outdoor artworks to add a bit of beauty to your day" says Avenue Calgary. To learn more about where to drive to find these pieces, click this link.
  • Check out a food truck drive through: Avenue Calgary writes, "Food truck season has officially started and YYCFoodTrucks has found a way to make sure we can still get our food fix during the pandemic. YYCFoodTrucks is organizing food truck drive-thrus with social distancing measures in the parking lots of Calgary malls. So far there have been drive-thrus on Tuesdays and weekends, but check YYCFoodTrucks’ website and social media channels for the latest dates, times and locations." This weekend they are at Grey Eagle Resort and Casino!
  • Go for a drive in the Mountains! You can drive into the mountains and get back on the hiking trails. Breathe in some fresh air!

Have a fantastic long weekend, Calgary!
