Had a lovely drive thru spruce meadows to admire the winter Christmas light display. Lots of great efforts put in. There is also a large fire pit with hot chocolate to warm up if you choose to walk the paths.

A world class event with a world class field!!! It’s fun and you have a world class facility in Calgary’s backyard. Really a shame so few people go out to watch. Take advantage of the chance to walk the course and stamp the grass divots
