Thanksgiving Weekend at Heritage Park

The park’s summer season is nearly over, so Thanksgiving weekend is your last chance to enjoy the historical village attractions for the year. Bring the family out to enjoy themed activities such as pumpkin baking, and in addition to the Thanksgiving menu on offer in the park’s Wainwright Hotel Dining Room, The Selkirk Grille is also offering a Thanksgiving menu. https://www.heritagepark.ca/plan-your-visit/event-calendar/thanksgiving-weekend.html

The Investors Group Alzheimers Thanksgiving Walk & Run

Now in its 25th year, this walk and run serves a great cause in raising money to support Calgary families affected by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. If the cause isn’t incentive enough to get involved, this year’s prizes for the top fundraisers include a tropical dream vacation package. http://ascal.convio.net/site/TR/WalkampRun/General?fr_id=1091&pg=entry
