The Calgary Hitmen's 2014 Teddy Bear Toss game was another huge success. Watch the video as more than 25,000 bears hit the ice for the 20th anniversary game.
Steamer's hot dogs are one of the many new food offerings at Rogers Arena. Named after Stan Smyl, these grilled Nathan's Famous dogs are creative and perfect.
The Calgary Hitmen Teddy Bear Toss is second only to a zamboni when it comes to best reasons to go to a hockey game for my kids. For the second year in a row we went to the game, tossed a teddy bear and watched in awe as they just kept going and going and going on the ice.
To sit in the Team Canada dressing room at winsport is a treat. This is the home of hockey in Canada. All of our greatest players sit on these benches before going for gold. For a moment I was Toews. I was Wickenheiser. I was Crosby.
What has long been suspected became official today via a Calgary Flames press release. The best goalie the Calgary Flames have ever seen, has retired.
25 000 teddy bears tossed on the ice in a matter of minutes. Watch the fur fly ...
Heritage Park Winter CARnival at Gasoline Alley Museum
1900 Heritage Drive SW [map]
Admission: $9.75 [Adults] $4.75 [Kids 3-17]
It’s a catch-22 this holiday season in Calgary. The snow is melting in these +9 temps, meaning our usual outdoor toboggan run is a strip of grass. So thanks to Family Fun Calgary
for suggesting a trip to Heritage Park
‘s Winter CARnival for my day of daddysitting.
There was boatloads for my 2 boys (2 and 4) to do celebrating Canadian winter sports – indoors.
Heritage Park’s Winter CARnival takes place in the gorgeous Gasoline Alley Museum amongst the vintage cars and gas pumps and displays celebrating Calgary’s heritage. Tossed around the museum are all sorts of games like milk jug curling, table hockey, shootouts, zamboni colouring and crafts, snow castle building, snow man stacking and more.
If you go during a World Junior Hockey Game, a big screen has been set up on the main floor to show the games.
Outside there’s a chance to skate on the only outdoor rink in Calgary guaranteed not to melt during this heat wave. Heritage Park’s free skating rink in Heritage Town Square is open along with a chance to warm up with a hot drink and fresh baking or lunch at the Railway Café and do a little post Christmas shopping in the unique shops in the Haskayne Mercantile Block.
How do you know the day of daddysitting was a success? Both were passed out before we got home.
