From festive photo ops to sing-alongs, sweet treats and wrapped gifts, Bridge made the most of it this holiday season!
In the center of one of Calgary’s most iconic mid-town neighbourhoods, known for it’s beautiful Christmas decorations and holiday celebrations, Bridge’s new residents found plenty of ways to ride the festive wave. The local favourite Bridgeland Market is always a destination for Calgary’s holiday traditions – starting on the first Saturday of every December, Bridgeland hosts a visit from Santa as he greets the local community and their pets for photo-ops and some local shopping opportunities for those extra special gifts.
This year the Bridgeland Elves celebrated a decade strong tradition – stocking hampers and making
deliveries to seniors within the Bridgeland community. Proudly supporting the local neighbours and residents of its neighbourhood, these hard workers brought the care and connection into the 2022 holiday season.

But that was simply not enough. At Bridge, we encourage our fellow residents to celebrate within, just as much as what’s outside their door. Our “A Few of Our Favourite Things” tenant bash let residents and furry friends snag professional holiday photos, and enjoy songs and prizes. Just in time for Christmas, local bakers from Cookie Mama in Bridgeland hosted a cookie-decorating party, followed by a photo-op (or twenty …).
Jamming to Santa’s favorite tunes, these baking artists got to show off more than just their love for sweets – with barely any leftover cookies for Santa.
Wrapping up our holiday season at Bridge, on January 7th we welcomed Calgary’s Korinnya Folk Choir to surprise tenants with traditional songs to celebrate the season. Dry eye in the room you say? We think not!
These breathtaking performers left a piece of Ukraine in all of our hearts this year.
As always, we hope you enjoyed your holiday season just as much as we did this last while, and as much as it saddens us to take down our festive decorations and beautiful lobby displays, we can’t wait to welcome the next event in our social spaces – truly made to mingle and entertain. Stay tuned for more upcoming events, or if we’ve enticed you enough – maybe it’s time to move in and plan your own!
