5 things to do in Calgary today: Wednesday, April 18

Apr 17 2018, 5:56 pm

We have it from a secured, official source (Environment Canada’s weather forecast) that Wednesday will be bright, clear, and everything an actual spring day should be.

Anyone who has spent some time in Calgary knows that the weather is unpredictable (to say the least) on this side of the Rockies, so your best bet is probably to get outside and enjoy it before another snowfall warning hits out of nowhere.

And what better way to get outside than by heading out to one of these great Calgary events?
