The May long weekend is only a few days away, and there are plenty of different events and activities happening in the Airdrie area to help keep you entertained.

We hope to see the Chinook Winds spray park back in action. The tentative opening date for the season is this Saturday.

Iron Horse Park is also slated to be opening for May Long Weekend on Sunday, May 21.

"Our normal operating days are Sundays between the Victoria Day/May Long weekend and Thanksgiving weekend. We look forward to welcoming the public, weather permitting, every Sunday between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. until October 8," the park stated on its website.
