What Summer in Calgary Looked Like This Year

With the season winding down, we’ve assembled a #throwback to some of the highlights of summer 2017 in Calgary.



It’s been a summer for the books. No, seriously, the temperatures are on track to be the hottest summer in recorded history according to Environment Canada

But the summer of 2017 has been noteworthy for other reasons, too.

Calgarians celebrated Canada’s 150th all across the city, felt the effects of the fires in B.C. wildfires, stared at the sky for an eclipse and for a Canadian-themed Globalfest – amongst other things. 

Here are some of the most Instagram-mable memories for Calgarians so far this summer.

We floated the Bow River in a desperate attempt to cool down

We ogled at the sky again (this time at night, and without safety precautions) for a patriotic edition of GlobalFest
