3rd Annual New Year's Eve Bash: Airdrie Festival of Lights

Let's make a really nice evening of this.


We will drive from Tim Horton's (Next to Totem) in Airdrie and take a stroll around the Festival of Lights. This is the last night for these lights, so hopefully it won't be too busy.


For those who want to meet at the Festival of lights the directions are:

To reach the Airdrie Festival of Lights from Calgary and other locations south of Airdrie, take Deerfoot Trail and Highway 2 to the first Airdrie exit. From the exit ramp, turn left, and then travel west on (Yankee Valley Blvd) about 1 kilometer, to the traffic lights at Main Street. Turn right onto Main Street, and travel north about 1 kilometer, then turn left into Nose Creek Park.

We will start walking through the Festival of Lights Park about 6:30 - 6:45 p.m.

There's a skating rink for those who want to bring their skates.



Please indicate when you sign up if you are able to offer a ride.

If you need a ride please contact the people who offer rides by clicking on their photo and sending them an e-mail

We will eat supper about 8:00 - 8:15 pm and will be at:

The Airdrie Wok (Chinese buffet and a la cart menu available)

121 Main Street



After supper it's back to Calgary for Dean's New Year's Eve Candlelight Walk of Hope (see his posting on this web site
http://www.meetup.com/Calgary-Nature-Lovers-Hiking-Meetup/events/151453822/ )

We will reconvene at Prince's Island Park, Calgary. Meet at the South end of the bridge at the end of 3rd St SW at approximately 1000 PM


Weather dependent there is ice skating on the lagoon at Prince's Island for those who are interested.
