The CPS Band 'FrontLine'

  • Enjoy great music by the Calgary Police Service's own band - FrontLine!
  • Meet neighbours while you have some snacks and drinks!
  • Let the kids get some fun, non-toxic face-painting!

* There will be a $10 levy to recycle the seat if you live outside the Downtown West Community, otherwise the DWCA will pay the levy for the resident. Ideally all seats should be stripped of fabric/foam/straps before being dropped off, but we can also strip the seat and recycle that material as well.
