Father’s Day arrives Sunday, but the weekend holds delights even for those who don’t smoke a pipe while dispensing wisdom.

Royal Canadian Family Circus, Friday, June 15 to Sunday, June 17. At the Big Top, CrossIron Mills parking lot

First let’s be clear: this is a family circus in the sense of a circus for families, not in the sense of a tepid cartoon that thinks kids say the darndest things. And let’s be clear about another thing: there are no exotic animals involved.

The attractions include the Guerrero Four-Man High Wire, equestrian acrobats, an aerial act and plenty of juggling.

Tickets are $25 – $50; some performances are sold out.

Okotoks Dawgs, Friday, June 15 to Sunday, June 17. At Seaman Stadium, Okotoks

The Dawgs have a three-game homestand this weekend that will see them take on the Brooks Bombers (Friday and Sunday) and the Medicine Hat Mavericks (Saturday).

What can we tell you? The stadium is a gem, tickets run $10 – $18.50, kids under 12 can sit on the berm for free, and the team is tied (as of Wednesday) for the division lead.

The Beltline Urban Murals Project (BUMP) is set to unveil its 2018 artists and the projects they will be undertaking in the course of the summer. For the Beltline Neighbourhoods Association, that is reason enough for a party. The live music starts at 3 p.m. and concludes with Ryan Hemsworth, who takes the stage around 8:30 p.m. The evening wraps up with a screening of Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox.

Train Days, Saturday, June 16 and Sunday, June 17. At Aspen Crossing, Mossleigh

Dad’s train is pulling into the station in the form not only of a strained metaphor but of an actual train. Aspen Crossing offers railway tours at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. ($15 – $25). The fun …read more
