COVID-19 continues to present a risk to public health. While restrictions have been lifted across Alberta, it is recommended to continue practicing health and safety measures, including frequent hand-washing, wearing a mask in indoor public spaces, and staying home if you are sick.

Pumpkins After Dark is coming to Calgary this fall for the first time, bringing a unique way to celebrate Halloween with stunning jack-o-lantern art.

Canada’s award-winning largest outdoor Halloween event will feature over 6,000 hand-carved pumpkins in a walk-through nighttime experience that’s fun for all ages.
