What to do for Canada Day in Alberta

There’s fun to be had in Fort Macleod over the Canada Day long weekend.

Are you as surprised as I am July is here? June is always such a busy month and planning your Canada Day long weekend can often get put on the back burner. Fortunately, Travel Alberta reached out and asked me if I’d could do a bit of research and recommend some quintessentially Canadian experiences found right here in Alberta.

Why not try stand up radio?

The fun doesn’t stop there! Next I went on a media tour, hitting up Edmonton’s Global Morning Show before chatting to 630 CHED. Since I was all glammed up for my TV appearance, I met a good friend from my University days for brunch before heading home.

I’d like to think we look just the same as we did during our Uni days…



This morning I was up at the crack of dawn again, going on Calgary’s Global Morning Show. (My mom would’ve been so mad with the way my hair covered my face!) Then I was escorted into the make up room, where I conducted my radio interview with News Talk 77. Kinda weird that’s where the mic and other radio equipment is located, but whatevs. Fun fact: anchor women and men don’t get their make up professionally applied. At least not at the local Global TV stations, where they have to do it themselves.

Doing broadcast segments always takes so much out of me. I’m so not a morning person. Between the early wake up call, full hair and make up, plus trying to remember my talking points, it’s all I can do not to crash by noon. Below is the segment I did for Calgary’s Global this morning. Take a look in case you’re interested in getting some fab recommendations for celebrating Canada Day.

What are your plans for the long weekend?
