Upcoming in YYC: September
Welcome back everyone! Another busy weekend in the books-I feel like I say this every blog post, but the summer is always a regular week and then super busy weekends, which is always a great time! I was meant to go on a hike with a friend, and then we ended up just going for brunch and mimosas so that didn't work out the way we thought. Although in our defence we walked from downtown (Telus parking centre too be more specific) all the way to Kensington and back which is a 40 minute walk one way, so we got our steps in still! And then had my mom's birthday dinner with the family on Sunday which was very lovely :)
But anyways! Going to try and shorten my intros more, so let's get into the September edition of the upcoming in YYC series! Autumn is my favourite time of year (yes I am very basic so it's on brand. LOVE PSL, LOVE the colours, and especially LOVE darker lipsticks), and I'm so excited to get into it!
Calgary Pride: August 23-September 2 Calgary is celebrating their 28th annual pride! There are parties, parades, concerts, plays, history walks, panel discussions, so make sure to catch the end of it if you can! (If you went to this event, let us know how it was!)
Calaway Park: From September 7-October 13 you can take a stroll through Hallotown with your family! As well as they have the Boo Crew Costumer Party on September 14-15 so make sure to dress to impress!
Circle: The Traveling Food, Beer, and Music Carnival: On September 13-14 this carnival takes place, and honestly the title doesn't do it justice! On the Friday from 4-10pm is the adults only night, and then the Saturday is fun for the whole family. There are 2 stages for performers and DJ's, food trucks, and there's a kid's stage for the little ones!
Railway Days at Heritage Park: September 28-29, hop aboard to learn all about trains! There are demonstrations, hands on activities, and exciting exhibits. So if you know anyone who loves trains this is a perfect event for them!

Sorry about this blog post being a little bit later than I usually post for the Upcoming in YYC series, last week was a little busy but y'all still had to hear about the events! Just like I always say, this is definitely not a complete list of what is coming up in Calgary, so check out visitcalgary.com to see some more of the events coming up.
Have a great week everyone, and we will see you back here next week for another blog post! As well, if you have any specific things you'd like us to write a blog post about, so that we can help you in more specific areas.
See ya next time!
