Long Weekend Round Up May 18 – 21

With a forecast of warm weather and a holiday Monday, take the weekend to get on your bike, take the family out and check out some excellent work from emerging visual artists.

The Alberta College of Art and Design’s 26th Annual Graduating Student Show is open to the public until May 26. Work is featured in the main mall, on the 3rd floor and at the Illingworth Kerr Gallery at ACAD. Take the chance to see work from emerging artists who have graduated from the school’s unique programs, including fibre, sculpture, jewellery and metals, glass, ceramics, print media, photography and more.

It’s the opening weekend for the Historical Village at Heritage Park this weekend. Enjoy the warm weather and take in the antique midway and historical village’s family-friendly attractions, such as the park’s steam train. On May 21, be one of the first 500 guests into the park and stop in for a complimentary pancake breakfast at Gunn’s Dairy Barn between 9:30 AM to 10:30 AM.

Formerly located in Eau Claire Market, the Good Life Community Bike Shop has relocated to Kensington. The shop offers tools, repairs and instruction on cycling, as well as reconditioned bikes and used bike parts for sale. Located at 148 10 ST NW, it’s the perfect stop before setting out to enjoy the Bow River Pathway or the new Peace Bridge into downtown.
