One thing about living in Canada is that when spring finally does roll in after a long and chilly winter, we tend to appreciate the warm weather a whole lot more than many of our neighbors to the south. Usually by April all of us, including auto dealers in Calgary, are itching to get out and get some fresh air, and thankfully the Calgary, AB area has loads of opportunities to be active and involved during the burgeoning spring season.
Here are a few of our favorite annual activities that should keep you and your family plenty busy this April and May:
The Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo (April 27-30) – If you’re someone who loves comic books or science fiction and fantasy television and movies, this particular Comic Con absolutely is worth checking out. Checking out all the patrons in cosplay outfits is worth the price of admission all on its own, but sneaking a peak at all sorts of great comic stuff and being granted the opportunity to meet stars like Jeremy Renner and John Cusack make this a can’t-miss event in Calgary this spring.
The Calgary International Children’s Festival (May 24-27) – This year marks the 30th anniversary of an event that has celebrated a joy of theater and performance right here in Calgary, and as always we expect tens of thousands of visitors to enjoy the theater, musicians, jugglers, magicians and acrobats that perform at this event. It really is a great time for kids of all ages (and their parents)!
Scotiabank Calgary Marathon (May 25-28) – For those that like to run (and particularly for those who like to run for a good cause), this huge city race raises tons of money for several area charities while also rewarding our most athletic residents in the footrace of the year.
Drive your Hyundai Tucson or Hyundai Elantra to any of these events this spring and enjoy the great weather as we all bid adieu to winter!
