Calgary in June

Although the official date for summer isn’t for another few weeks, the weather Gods have been blessing us lately which means the visible population of Calgary has magnified. People are out and about everywhere, (even with the 17th Avenue construction) and it made me curious, where is everyone going and what is everyone doing? In the off chance that along your travels you don’t actually have a destination, or your weekends are in need of something different, I got you covered. In the event you do have plans, but you need more, I still got you covered.
