Calgary's Neighbour Day: A closer look at neighbourhood demographics
Mayor Naheed Nenshi will be visiting at least 10 gatherings on Saturday
Which Calgary neighbourhood has the most singles? The most seniors? The most families?
A closer look at the city census reveals the answers just in time for Neighbour Day.
The city has declared Saturday Neighbour Day and is encouraging people to get together with barbecues, street parties and picnics. It's meant to celebrate how Calgarians came together to help out during the 2013 flood.
Many Neighbour Day events are small affairs, but the city has a list of 10 that are open to the public. Mayor Naheed Nenshi is expected to hit about a dozen events.
