Normally the last weeks of school would be full of fun wrap up opportunities – school concerts, sports day, themed days, and more! While it’s just one more thing that is different, it can feel disappointing and anti-climatic.

It’s now official – the 2020 Calgary Stampede will not be held this July. While this is a huge community event that many families in Calgary look forward to, it’s also another celebration that we won’t be celebrating together this year.

Calgarians LOVE Halloween! There are a ton of spooky events all over town and the surrounding communities for all ages, from date nights to daytime haunts perfect for the littles. Dress ’em up and get out there!
By Ellen Percival, Calgary’s Child Magazine Holiday shopping is hectic at the best of times, but add a couple of unenthusiastic kids to the mix and you’ve got the potential for one huge headache. With a little patience (and planning ahead) shopping for the holidays can be a little less frenzied. Make a shopping list,
