Moms and pops, mark your calendars! Friday, February 28 is Dominion Lending Centres Family Friendly Day at the Calgary Home + Garden Show, where kid-friendly crafts, face painting, temporary tattoos, grab bags and plenty of expert advice for parents will take centre stage from 12PM to 5PM at the BMO Centre & Corral. With a line-up of exciting activities sure to keep kiddies entertained and free entry for tots under twelve, there’s never been a better time to rally the troops and come down to the show for a fun-filled day the whole family can enjoy together.

With the frantic frenzy of carpools, practices and playdates, scheduling quality time with your family can feel next to impossible. Enter the perfect opportunity to clock some time with the ones you love most; with family-friendly features like State Farm’s mini hockey rink, Blue Grass’ full playscape, free cupcakes from Towne Photography and the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society’s collection of adorable and adoptable four-legged friends, there’s something for every youngster – or young at heart adult.

With the kids busy and entertained, make your way down to the main stage to score some great advice from speakers like finance and real estate expert Jay Seabrook, who will appear on the State Farm Main Stage presented by HGTV at 3PM. Seabrook, who appeared on CBC’s hit series Dragon’s Den, will share his tips for ‘Creating the Dragons of Tomorrow’ by teaching kids about money from an early age – a lesson session that is as valuable for your children’s future bank accounts as it is for your own wallet. Little dragons are welcome to attend!

With the first 200 families through the doors receiving swag bags chock-full of great goodies, this is one family outing to which you won’t want to arrive late. See you there!
