4. Check out one of Airdrie’s Indoor Playgrounds

Airdrie currently has an indoor playground  Jumble District as well as the nearby Big Fun Play Centre.

5. Go for a Swim

The pool at the Genesis Centre is just as good as Calgary’s leisure centres and is usually less busy.

In December, the Airdrie Festival of Lights is one of the best light displays in town. It is actually more than just a light display and features activities, train rides, skating and more.
