World-class events en­joyed af­ford­ably

Calgary Herald - - EDITORIAL -

Cal­gary, you rock! What an amaz­ing week­end and so much on for so lit­tle money.

We ex­pe­ri­enced world­class horse jump­ing at Spruce Mead­ows for four days — an ab­so­lute gift to the peo­ple of Cal­gary and sur­round­ing ar­eas. En­try fee $5 which in­cluded the af­ter­noon/evening events plus fire­works.

Then there was the Ho­nen’s (pi­ano com­pe­ti­tion) that takes place over a 10-day pe­riod from Aug. 30 to Sept. 8 and cul­mi­nates in an ope­nair con­cert in Cen­tral Me­mo­rial Park with the Kens­ing­ton Sin­fo­nia with world-class pi­ano play­ers — no cost again. You just sit on your blan­ket or chair and en­joy. Truly an event not to be missed — ab­so­lutely out­stand­ing.

And right along­side there was jazz play­ing in East Vil­lage in a free, open-air con­cert. Wow Cal­gary, you are ab­so­lutely amaz­ing! Brenda Wilt, Cal­gary
