Nothing beats a long weekend in the summertime. Many people have already begun their celebrations by heading out of town to the Big Valley Jamboree in Camrose or perhaps found a nice campsite and will spend the weekend camping (or glamping) in the great outdoors! But what if you’re sticking around a little closer to home? There’s certainly plenty to do right in our own back yard, from the Strathmore Stampede to the Calgary International Blues Festival (which is currently underway) to the Stamps Legacy Game against the Alouettes on Saturday, there’s something for everyone this August Long Weekend.
Here’s a great list of the many events: http://www.visitcalgary.com/maps-tools/inside-guide/august-long-weekend-activity-guide
