We’ve made our way back around to Monday.
While Monday may not be everyone’s cup of tea, there are still plenty of exciting things to check out going on around the city (it is summer, after all).
Plus, getting out and about today is a great way to start of a very exciting week, as we officially launch into the hottest month of the year.
So what’s the plan for today, Calgary?
