Thanksgiving Jasper or not?

Jump to last reply

Hello fellow fodorites. I am planning a trip to Jasper to visit my daughter who will be finishing up a summer job on Oct 17th.
It's early in the planning process but have a couple of key questions before we book flights:

What are the pros or cons of being there for Canadian Thanksgiving?
Her birthday is the 8th and I would like to be there for that but don't know whether to clear out before the weekend or stay on because of the weekend?

Secondly, a friend is coming with me and will probably have a week longer leave than myself (I will have 2 weeks total, coming from Oz.) I have visited this area previously, she has never been to Canada and is thinking perhaps of doing Vancouver Island on her own.
If so, would she be better doing that the week before we meet (late Sept/early Oct) or after I leave (mid October.)

Thanks very much in advance. More questions to come :)}
