This year Banff celebrates the 125th birthday of the Banff National Park, a part of the Rocky Mountains. Banff National Park is one of the 42 national park in Canada, a very well protected network of treasured natural and historic places. It is also the birthplace of the word’s first national park services! Until November 2010, special programs and events will celebrate this significant 125th anniversary. Discover unforgettable experiences to add to your time in Canada.
Enjoy hikes, family camping, horseback rides, climbs, cultural excursions, festivals, a national historic site visit, or strolls within the unique mountain communities of Banff and Lake Louise.
This Saturday and Sunday August 28-29 you can join other Banff residents on a camping trip and participate in one of the many interactive events on one of Banff’s 1500 camping sites.
Are you more of an indoor person? No worries how about checking out the Dragon Fli Empire! Calgary’s hip hop heroes are gonna make the HooDoo bounce.

I really wish I could join in on the camping trip, my 4 day trip in the Rockies wasn’t nearly enough! But I hope that our INTERNeX Candidates working in Banff have the time to attend one of these celebrations.
