The Calgary Zoo’s annual winter tradition is in full swing! ZOOLIGHTS is now on until January 6, 2018 and is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. The lights festival is bigger and better with more lights than ever before. In fact, the Zoo ran out of lights twice during the setup of the all the displays (thank goodness for Canadian Tire lol).

What do you love about Calgary?

As a born-and-raised Calgarian, it sometimes seems like I’m a unicorn out in the prairies.

The northwest restaurant has built up a reputation over the years as a place for quality eats and I always have a great (and filling!) time at NOtaBLE. I went for a View this Post
