Plenty to do this weekend for Mother’s Day in Red Deer

Moms are special, aren’t they?

That’s why we celebrate them every year on Mother’s Day. But if you are too old to serve your mom breakfast in bed, maybe you can take her somewhere in Red Deer.

Here’s your guide to all the events that are going on this Mother’s Day in the area:

* If your mom is into antiques and furniture, then the Carswell’s 30th annual Red Deer Mother’s Day Antique & Vintage Show & Sale might be the one for you.

At the Westerner Park event this weekend, you and your mom will find retro records, estate jewelry, china, lamps and nostalgia treasures.

The show and sale runs 10 to 5 p.m. Saturday and 10 to 4 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $10. The event is free for everyone 14 and under.

* You and your mom can also welcome spring at the Mother’s Day Craft Show and Market. Here, you and your mom can shop for home decor, health and wellness products, woodwork, clothing and jewelry, among other items.

Admission is free at the Baymont Inn & Suites and Conference Centre. The market runs Saturday from 10 to 4 p.m.

* If your mom is into music, the Red Deer Symphony Orchestra is hosting La Dolce Vita at Gaetz Memorial Chuch on Saturday at 8 p.m. You and your mom can imagine the sounds and sights of southern Italy with Canadian boroque cello superstar Elinor Frey.

For tickets visit or call RDSO office at 403-340-2948.

* If you and your mom are into fitness, the eighth annual Red Deer PCN Women’s Fun Run might do the trick.
