4. Fall Time is Pumpkin Time

Other Fall attractions, like Fall Days at the Calgary Farmyard (starts Sept. 1) have tonnes of family-friendly events, including pumpkin photo ops and a corn maze. Granary Road also has their Pumpkin Fest, and WinSport’s Pumpkins After Dark event is definitely worth a visit!

5. Skip The Crowds

A lot of Calgary’s major seasonal attractions – like Heritage Park and Calaway Park – stay open on weekends from Labour Day to Thanksgiving, so it’s a perfect time to get out and experience them with fewer crowds!
