Among its other virtues, the May long weekend serves as the unofficial start of summer. It also sees a couple of official openings that herald the demise of winter.
Heritage Park Opening Weekend, Saturday, May 19 to Monday, May 21, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The 54th summer season at the historical village sees a few new wrinkles in time. Due to work on the Glenmore Dam, the SS Moyie will not sail this year. In happier news, Heritage Park’s new attractions include the chance to take part in Frontier Filmmaking, a piece of street theatre. The Famous 5 Centre of Canadian Women will also host a 1930s-style radio play.
Admission ($13.65 – $26.50) can be purchased at the gate or online.
Calaway Park Grand Opening Weekend, Saturday, May 19 to Monday, May 21, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The hair-raising fun at Calaway Park now includes the Sky Wynder which puts a twist on a vertical drop. Now thrill-seekers can spiral while plummeting 12 metres
Admission ($31 – $39.95; kids two and under, free) can be purchased at the gate or online.
The weekend fun also includes:
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in Concert, Friday, May 18, 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, May 19, 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
Augggh! Can it already be 17 years since Harry Potter first hit the big screen? The CPO offers some consolation for those of us mystified by the passing of time by screening Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone while providing a live version of John Williams’ soundtrack.
The Saturday matinee was added due to demand, so you just might luck out and find tickets ($25 – $85). Work your magic here.
Mary Poppins, Friday, May 18 to Saturday, June 9 at StoryBook Theatre, 375 Bermuda Dr. N.W.
