The Calgary Zoo is no question, one of the best places to experience in Calgary with the family. There is no other Zoo around like it, it'll give you and your kids a very memorable experience and a fun filled day. There is a large selection and variety of animals to see, including; monkeys, tigers, giraffes, penguins, moose, bears, and many many more. The Zoo is split up into different sections of habitats for the animals, not only do you get to see animals, you can also enjoy great foods and drinks as well. Make sure to dress warm though, as it's still quite cold outside and most of the Zoo consists of being outside as well. Again the Calgary Zoo is an amazing place to spend time with the family and to spend this year's Family Day.
Calgary Flames NHL Game
The NHL team the Calgary Flames is Calgary's most loved hockey team. Luckily on the day of Family Day, Calgary Flames have a home game located at the ScotiaBank Saddledome, starting at 2pm. The game is a perfect activity to go out and spend time with your family while also cheering on our own Calgary Flames. You will also get to enjoy great food and drinks, while watching some of the best level of hockey in the world. Even though we are Calgarians and have probably been to several Calgary Flames games, they never get old, and are always a great time to spend with family, friends and all of Calgary as a whole.
