Our thoughts are with all families currently displaced and affected by the Alberta wildfires. Sourcing out family entertainment is probably one of the last things on your mind or in your budget, so we are sharing local venues offering FREE admission. At the very least we hope it gives a place for the kids to burn off some energy and helps take everyone’s minds off things for a short period of time.
