Heritage Park is one of our favourite places to visit in Calgary so when we learned just recently that a special event called Holiday in the Park was starting up there we jumped at the chance to go as there is really nothing better than Christmas time at Heritage Park!  This is a separate event from what Heritage Park puts on at this time of the year and is run by FAB Events.  Kirstie and I got there several minutes early as we were beyond excited to see what this event was all about and it truly surprised us at just how beautifully thoughtful it was put together and we quickly realized that this was a very special event that will certainly become a favourite Holiday tradition of ours from here on out. The chance to see Heritage Park at night was already enticing enough but then to see the incredible amount of lights on all of the beautiful heritage buildings really created a world that I have never seen.  To be able to walk around the historical Main Street at night with classic Christmas music playing and the cozy glow of lights twinkling on all of the buildings really sparked my imagination and it was easy to feel like I had truly stepped back into time in this historical village.  If you want to see some beautifully done Christmas lights mixed together with incredible Alberta history then this is definitely the spot to check out while it is still going this December.
