Not sure what to do once the week is done? Well, we found an event that is cuteness overload. Grab your car keys, as you'll definitely want to try it. Calgary Farmyard has a new drive-thru experience, and it is totally free this weekend.
It is happening Saturday, June 6 and Sunday, June 7, and you won't want to miss it. As part of the drive-thru tour, you'll get to see so many fluffy barnyard animals.
As it is spring, you can expect to see lots of fluffy baby animals. But Calgary Farmyard told Narcity their show stopper is the new tiny mule which was born not a week earlier.
Without a doubt, you'll get to see all your favourite critters. There will be llamas, alpacas, horses, cows, donkeys, pigs, rabbits, goats and more.
From start to finish, it will take approximately 25 minutes of pure joy.
The entire tour can be enjoyed from inside your vehicle. If you want, you can roll down your window to get a better photo.
You will also get an audio link file that you can listen to on your phone. The fun recording will teach you all about the animals you can see outside your window.
While the event is free, there is the option to donate to a local food bank.
You will need to get your ticket online, but only one is required per vehicle.
But the good news is you won't have to wait long to get in. Each ticket is for a specific 30 minute entry time.
Make sure to stop everything and claim your spot now. There are limited spots available, so get one today before they are all gone.
After Sunday, Calgary Farmyard will remain closed to the public. They hope to re-open to the public this summer, but no exact date has been set.
When: Saturday, June 6 and Sunday, June 7
Address: 284022 Township Rd. 224, Rocky View County, AB
Why You Need To Go: You can see so many cute animals right from your car.
Back in March, Alberta RCMP came across a driver with a paper license plate on Highway 2 near Leduc. While they didn't recognize that it was a fake right away, they did notice that it had a tinted cover over it.
They pulled over the driver and ran the license plate number only to find that it didn't exist in the system. When they talked to the person behind the wheel, they immediately confessed that they didn't have vehicle registration or insurance.
They also admitted that the plate wasn't real and that it was just a piece of paper.
"Using a made up number, the driver had printed the image on a piece of paper at home that was then placed onto an "I (Heart) My Car" vanity plate and hidden behind the tinted cover," said Alberta RCMP.
This driver was slapped with initial fines that totalled over $2,000 and will need to appear in court for driving without insurance. If convicted, they face a minimum fine of $2,875.

On Wednesday, April 21, Minister of Labour and Immigration Jason Copping announced the introduction of paid leave in Alberta for locals who want to get a COVID-19 vaccine.
The leave will be three hours and it applies to both full-time and part-time employees. "Hard-working Albertans want to get the vaccine, but some may not be able to because of their working hours," said Copping, continuing to say that some people may not be able to afford "a loss of pay."
