Discovery Ridge Food Truck Night!

7 Trucks to Choose From! Skip a night of cooking dinner or come down for a treat on Thursday, September 24th (4:30-7:30pm)! We may not have been able to have our usual DRCA events this year due to COVID restrictions but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been working hard on other fun ideas and we are pleased to be bringing YYC Food Trucks to our Recreation Facility area on the 24th. Bring the family down and purchase meals or treats to go from the truck of your choice! There will be space on the grass to throw down a blanket and eat there, if you prefer. Participating Food Trucks: Family Dogs, Happy Fish, Take It & Go, Calgary Mini-Donuts, Canadian Bear Balls, The Nut Man & Family Squeezed Lemonade.

We invite you to participate in the 1st (and we hope only) Annual
Social Distancing Easter Egg Hunt

Print our a few Easter Egg patterns that you can easily find on the internet (here is a LINK if you wish) . You or your children are encouraged to colour as many eggs as you wish and then hide them in your window or even your yard – get creative! Make sure they are there by Saturday night!

This Sunday, April 12, we invite you to take a walk (with appropriate social distancing!) through the community, take a few pictures and a tally of all the eggs you find! Once you’re finished your hunt, email your favourite picture and your number of eggs to volunteer@discoveryridge.com

The top two households with the largest number of found eggs will win a
$25 gift certificate to either Javino or Maharajah.
All entries must be in by 5:00PM on April 12.

HAVE FUN and STAY SAFE!
