[twitter]My new 2014 Entertainment Book for Calgary has arrived and I’ve been rapidly flipping the pages and planning out itineraries for things to do with the boys this spring and summer.
I am a not at home Dad, I can’t just do crafty things with the boys around the house, I need to be out and exploring, adventuring, doing with them. The 2014 Entertainment Book is filled with great coupons at all sorts of fun places to get out and do stuff with the kids.
Head Smashed In Buffalo Jump: BOGO Tickets
This is a bit of a hike at 2 hrs south of Calgary, but come spring time, it’s one of my favorite daytrips from the city. Zacharie and I did it a few years ago, and this year will be Charlie’s turn to head down to this wonderful UNESCO World Heritage Site and learn more about the history of Alberta.
Play It Again Sports: 20% off up to $25 value
This is my go to place for getting skates and sports gear for the kids. They grow out of it so quickly, there’s no way I want to pay full freight for a pair of skates or soccer boots. Zacharie is on a weird growth pattern that see him outgrowing skates mid-season. New skates are needed for the rest of this year and this is where I’m getting them.
Calgary Hitmen Tickets: BOGO for Adult Tickets
The boys love watching the zamboni more than anything, to be honest. That said, the Teddy Bear Toss is one of their favorite events of the year. Using this coupon we can get out to another game this year and cheer on the Hitmen and their league leading record.
Calgary Roughnecks: BOGO Tickets
There’s actually 2 coupons for the Calgary Roughnecks in the 2014 Entertainment Book, so our family of 4 could head out for half price. We took in some Calgary Roughnecks playoff games last year, and the boys loved the energy and excitement. The music doesn’t stop and the streamers fly when the home team scores. I’ve circled the Mar 14 game vs Edmonton for our family night at the Roughnecks.
Chinook Bowladrome: 25% off your first hour of bowling
The boys have been to a few bowling parties for friend’s birthdays and had a blast. With another weekend of deep freezing temperatures coming up, this makes for a great indoor afternoon at a discount. It’s 5 pin, they’ll toss up bumpers for the kids. Winner.
Calgary Tower: BOGO Admission
I like being a tourist in my own town. Just wandering around and checking out things that tourists would normally do is a great way to really appreciate and understand where you live. The Calgary Tower is a shining beacon in our city, and this Calgary Tower coupon will save the freight to get to the top. Only then you have to decide if you have the guts to stand on the glass floor.
That’s just the beginning of kid friendly coupons I’ve torn out of the 2014 Entertainment Book. Have a look around the Entertainment website and see for yourself how quickly the Calgary coupons and discounts will pay for the book. And then when it comes to date nights away from the kids Entertainment offers great coupons for dining out.
The 2014 Entertainment Book is also available as an app. This let’s you geolocate the best deals to the area you’re in and pick up other great offers that may be only. I always keep the book in the glove box so I can grab what I need if I decide on a last minute outing.
Where are your things to do with kids in Calgary? How do you save money when you need to get out and entertain the kids?
