6 things to do in & around #YQL this weekend


Coaldale Granite Club

The Coaldale Granite Club is hosting the prestigious bonspiel. Tickets are $5 for a single draw, $10 for a day pass, and $50 for the entire event. For more information, call the Coaldale Curling Rink at 403-345-4742.


With the season winding down, the Hurricanes find themselves in the top spot of their division and are working towards clinching a playoff spot early on down the stretch. Cheer them on Friday at the ENMAX Centre as they take on the Portland Winterhawks. Puck drops at 7 p.m.


Remember the good ol’ days? Even if you can’t, you’ll still get a kick and giggle out of the musical-comedy revue “Old Favourites” at the Yates Memorial Theater. Presented by Nord-Bridge and 1st Choice Savings, the show plays Friday at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday at 1 and 7:30 p.m.  Tickets are $33 per person.


Do you love photography but could use a little help bringing your skills into focus? Then you’ll want to check out the Lethbridge Artists Club (LAC) Digital Photography class at Casa Saturday from 10 a.m.–3 p.m. Bring your camera if you have one, or attend and gather ideas on what to buy—either way, the hands-on instruction will have you shooting like a pro in no time. Class fee is $50 per person and LAC members will receive $10 off.  


Bundle up and throw on your walking shoes in support of Lethbridge’s homeless, hungry, and hurting for the Coldest Night of the Year Walk Saturday at Exhibition Park. The walk, with 2 km, 5 km, or 10 km routes, begins and ends and the Grandstand.
