5 things to do in Calgary today: Tuesday, March 13

Mar 12 2018, 7:46 pm

We’re not gonna sugar-coat it… Tuesday really isn’t the most exciting day of the week.

Stuck in the early days of the work-week, poor Tuesday is probably the furthest away from the weekend you can get, because Monday at least gets to be a part of the fun during holidays.

Just all the more reason why it is imperative that you plan something extra fun for today, and we’ve got the perfect suggestions!

Take a look at some great events to do this Tuesday and you’ll be thinking it’s the weekend in no time.
