Article about Things to do in the Holiday Season
Number 12: Bragg Creek, Alberta
Bragg Creek is a friendly hamlet in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. It's the kind of place where ranchers and artists rub shoulders with business folk and commuters (it's a 30-minute drive from Calgary), and where a horse tethered outside the grocery store isn't an uncommon sight. It's this same down-home feel that envelopes the annual Spirit of Christmas event, which launches this year with a Friday night dance on Nov. 30 (EDIT: dance cancelled) and ontinues over the next two weekends. Locals and visitors come for the ice sculpting and horse-drawn wagon rides - not to mention a chance to see real live reindeer. Dec. 1, 2, 8 and 15; visitbraggcreek.com
