8:00 a.m. 'Run' don’t 'Walk' to get a taste of this delicious breakfast! We promise, it’s worth it.

Start your day off right with a classic North American breakfast at The Beltliner, a modern diner offering some of the best breakfast in town. Enjoy some classic eggs benedict, root beer floats, and fried chicken or delicious buttermilk waffles with fresh fruit. Whatever you choose, you won’t be disappointed.

9:30 p.m. Spread your wings and 'Learn to Fly' at WinSport

Soar through the sky with a view of the city on North America’s Fastest Zipline at WinSport. You’ll takeoff from the same jump made famous by Eddie the Eagle in the ’88 Olympics and fly down several ziplines throughout the park. Add to your adrenaline-filled adventure with Free Fall where you’ll feel the sensation that's the closest thing you can get to skydiving as you free fall eight metres before coming to a slow decent to the ground.

1:00 p.m. Once you try this pizza you’ll be asking “where have you been 'All My Life'?”

Sink your teeth into fresh and delicious oven baked thin-crust creations at Without Papers. Made from scratch with authentic Italian ingredients, each bite will leave you wanting more.

2:00 p.m.  'This is a Call' for all music fans! Explore the artists and their iconic sounds at Studio Bell

Celebrate music icons in the Canadian Halls of Fame, rock out with interactive instrument installations, and sing along in sound booths at Studio Bell, home of the National Music Centre. Explore five floors of exhibitions, collection of rare instruments, artifacts, and music memorabilia from Canada’s music history.

5:00 p.m. Don't drink 'Dirty Water' - rock your taste buds with some local brews!

Grab a bit to eat and a local brew at Trolley 5 Brewpub before the show! A talented Brewmaster makes a selection of core and seasonal beers on site and, in the name of community, also has rotating guest taps featuring other local brews. Visit the tap room and take home a growler, howler, or 6 packs to share with friends!

7:00 p.m. Foo Fighters take the stage - it’s 'Times Like These' you’ll never forget.

Rock all night to the iconic tunes of the Foo Fighters at the Scotiabank Saddledome. Prepare for a perfect night to end the perfect day!

10:00 p.m. If you're thinking "'I’ll Stick Around' for some more fun,” check out National on 10th

After the show, stop by National on 10th and test out hundreds of craft and local beers on tap with your friends as you rant and rave over an incredible night you’ll always remember. Don’t forget to test out your skills in the 8-lane bowling alley on the lower level.
