The spookiest time of the year is coming up soon—Halloween! Calgary is coming alive with ghouls and goblins of all ages roaming around the city. Some will be in search of treats, others tricks, but everyone can find a fun way to celebrate the season!
Calgary has no shortage of parties, activities, and deals to explore. Here are four you don’t want to miss out on.
- Halloween Swim Coupons
Let’s face it: the kids are going to get a lot of candy. But you can give the kids a healthy alternative that will keep them – and their parents – happy. Instead of traditional sugar-filled Halloween sweets, treat your trick or treaters with a coupon for a free swim at a Calgary facility! With one coupon, preschoolers, children and youth ages 2-17 can enjoy a free swim. For just $5, you can buy a booklet of 10 coupons. Halloween swim coupons are available to purchase online, at Calgary aquatic & fitness centres, leisure centres and at the recreation Business Services centre. More information here.
