Things to do in August

CELEBRATE AUGUST – While It’s Here! 

The Dog Days of August – the hottest stretch of the year, is a good and bad thing at the same time. Yes, there’s great weather, but we’re just that much closer to September.  Here are some ideas for things to do in August!

So let’s make sure to celebrate August while it’s here!



So many things to do in and around Calgary and southern Alberta in August. 

The Heritage Long Weekend kicks off August and Heritage Park is always a great place to get in the spirit.  

There is the month-long, adult, Epic Calgary Scavenger Hunt.  

Calaway Park opened in July and is ready for August. 

The Alberta Country Music Series with various hosts is on at the National Music Centre.  

The Calgary Fringe Festival goes from August 2 – 10. 

The annual Dragon-Boat Race and Festival goes again at North Glenmore Park August 9-10-11. 

The ever-popular Globalfest Fireworks competition, music-set-to-fireworks, goes at Elliston Park August 15, 17, 20, 22 and 24th. 


Everyone loves getting out with family and friends… right?

Celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, new jobs, moving away, golf outings, office gatherings, etc, all seem to be of a little more importance this year. With many closures around the city, a limo or party bus can be the party place! You can play your own music and drink in our licenced vehicles and celebrate those special events with style!


Where do I get the best price for a Limo or Party Bus? 

We do encourage all customers to compare prices for Limousine and Party Bus service

You can also request to view the Limousine in person. For example, if it is for something as special as your wedding day, you may want to see it in person as website photos may be outdated or of a similar, but different limo. Be wary of companies that will not allow you to visit in person.

Some companies advertise limo transportation services but don’t own any limousines and will farm out the work to a third party. It is always best to work directly with the company that will be providing you with service to avoid any miscommunication.


Do I need a reason for a Party Bus or Limousine Rental? 


There are special years, months, weeks and days in every calendar year. It’s really amazing how many days have been set aside to mean something for somebody somewhere, and all have been registered. 

If summer is a time where you don’t have much on the calendar to celebrate, and you need one, we have compiled a list for just such occasions.

With our tongue planted firmly in our cheek, some interesting reasons to celebrate in August are as follows: 

(Remember I have just compiled this list from sources, so if some days seem dumb, well, you know).


Some associations and groups have made August their recognition month: 


*International Pirate’s Month 

*Bystander Awareness Month 

*Children’s Eye-health and Safety Month 

*Get Ready for Kindergarten Month 

*Motorsports Awareness Month 

*Read A Romance Novel Month 

*Happiness Happens Month 


It’s August, that in itself is reason to get out and enjoy the sunshine. 

Remember, every outing can be made that much more special with a Limousine rental or a Party Bus! 

If you’re needing a reason to celebrate in August, maybe there’s something for you in one of the Celebrated days of August.
