This past weekend I had a chance to spend the day with my mom at the Calgary Woman’s Show. It was my first chance to attend the event in several years, since I have been living in Vancouver for such a long time. It was really great to see how the Calgary Stampede grounds have changed since I’ve been away and to see the diversity of booths and presentations on offer.
Thetook place October 22nd to 23rd at the BMO Centre at the Calgary Stampede grounds.
It was a really relaxing, enjoyable time—there were booths for spas and beauty products, which we liked browsing. . .and one of the big draws of the event was the giveaway of a full makeover! The lady who won was really lucky. I really wish that I could give a gift like that to my mom. She really deserves to relax a bit, since she is a caregiver—always on her feet and taking care of others!
While other women enjoyed seeing the different celebrities from True Blood, I must admit that I am not a huge fan of the show. I watched the first season but stopped after a while. But there were lots of other things to see and do—like the fashion show, always a hit! One of my favourite things to do at events like this one is to enter to win door-prizes and giveaways! The Calgary Woman’s Show didn’t disappoint me in that way. The last event I went to, I won an emergency alert system from Environment Canada, which is such a great prize.
What did you get up to on the weekend? The weather here was sunny and beautiful (one of my favourite things about this city is the amount of sunshine), so my mom and I had a great time being out at the Calgary Woman’s Show.
