Ride Through Time 2014 celebrated our neighborhood and city’s heritage with a Royal Union Flag raising by the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI). Old-fashioned fair activities manned by our volunteer team were available for the whole family. If you weren’t able to attend, fear not! We’ve included photographs of the highlights here. Ride Through Time is an annual Mid-Summer fair, and the next one is only a 354-day wait away!
As part of Historic Calgary Week running from July 25th to August 4th, Ride Through Time had the pleasure of offering booths from the following partner organizations: Chinook Country Historical Society, the Calgary Heritage Initiative, the Firefighters Museum of Calgary, the Calgary Public Library, the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry Regimental Museum, and Memory Lane Fashions. We’d like to thank all of our partners, volunteers and participants for making the day a huge success!
