Now that snow has arrived it’s time to get into the Christmas and holiday season! And we found lots of events to lift your holiday spirits. While these events aren’t really walking distance to Jackson in Walden (walk? it’s too cold for that!), they are definitely worth the drive! So pile your family or friends into the car and enjoy some of the best Christmas events and displays that Calgary (and area) has to offer.
- Zoo Lights – Starts November 25th! With over 1.5 million lights, 200 displays, fire pits and other activity zones, the zoo is transformed into a winter wonderland that will amaze all.
- Canada Pacific Holiday Train – The CP Holiday Train is back! On December 10th, for one night only, the train will be rolling into the Anderson C-Train Station. The train is over 1,000 feet long with fourteen rail cars covered in lights.
- Legacy Christmas Light Parade – During the month of December over 80,000 lights will be twinkling throughout the community of Legacy including a tunnel of lights, Christmas displays and an outdoor skating rink to enjoy!
- Christmas at Spruce Meadows – The Christmas Markets starts this weekend, but that’s not all! Did you know that starting Dec 5th there will be a 2km drive around the grounds, adorned with Christmas decorations and 250,000 lights blanketing Spruce Meadows?
These are just a few of events and light displays you can enjoy in and around Calgary in the coming weeks! So bundle up and get outta the house to enjoy the wonder.
