Spring is a capricious mistress in Calgary. But April is always filled with the hope of things to come. Plus, it’s easier to head to the playground when you don’t have to bundle up so much! Sidewalks are ready for biking and it’s time to get out and play, or maybe get those gardens ready. Whatever the weather, check out some fun events in Calgary this April.
Hey, Mom! Do you need a break? (Okay, I know you need a break.) Start the month off with a Yoga Mindfulness Retreat at Camp Cadicasu on April 2, 2022.
