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 posed with a giant travelling red ball for Canada Day
We caught the new On-It $10 shuttle for a Banff day-trip
We feasted on delightful and weird food at Calgary Stampede
We embraced plays in the great outdoors with Shakespeare by the Bow
We entered a world of witchcraft and wizardry (if just for a day) at the Kensington Diagon Alley
We devoured a lot of charcoal ice-cream from Lukes Drug Mart
We used the smoke from the B.C. fires to take, actually, very neat photos
We floated the Bow River in a desperate attempt to cool down
We stared at the sky to catch the total solar eclipse (safely, of course)
