FAB Things to Do: Labour Day Weeknd & Pride Calgary

Another week has flown by and we’re that much closer to fall – BOOOO! Summer don’t go away. I’ve been busy gearing up for a busy September, from attending the Masters at Spruce Meadows to fundraising for the Terry Fox Run with my Les Clefs d’Or group.
Last  weekend I enjoyed spending time by the Bow River soaking up some sun. If you haven’t made a trip to the river this summer I suggest you add it to the list. Parks, refreshing rivers and pathways are one of the perfect ways to spend a warm afternoon with family and friends.
The water is quite warm and great sites to check out along the way such as Eau Claire, Fort Calgary, Zoo, Bird Sanctuary, Ed worthy Park, including the Fab new Olympic Rapid Course. The is a full day or half day , which ever you prefer. If you have no plans this Labor Day long weekend I recommend you plan a float.
I can’t believe I am about to Blog about September. Like really? Football is quickly approaching , and harvest is right around the corner. Summer is leaving us, but we’re rolling into another season of crisp fall colors.
This weekend rainbows will fly high in the sky glittering the streets of Stephen Ave. Calgary Pride starts today and runs through the long weekend. The official pride will fill Stephen Ave Sunday morning with beer gardens and other festivities taking place in Olympic Plaza. 
The Pride weekend schedule is so packed that it’s just easier for me to direct you to the website. Check out the schedule and encourage you to stop by to show your Pride! http://www.pridecalgary.ca/
The staff at the hotel has anxiously been awaiting today, as we raised the Pride flags high above the hotel and set another 2 up on Stephen Avenue.

The bartenders at Sandstone lounge have been diligently working on a feature cocktail for the weekend. “Pride in a Pitcher”, our signature White Sangria will be served on the patio all weekend for only $20.
