The first Friday in July marks the best 10 days of the summer. Now that we don't live right by Calgary we only get there for a few days each year, but it is always something that is a part of our summer plans.
When we are traveling if we mention that we are from Alberta we are often asked if we have ever been to the Stampede. We are envied when they find out that we go each year. It's kinda like living next to Disneyland.
Here are a few fun facts about the Stampede:
I salute the Volunteers and those that have fought to keep the Stampede alive and growing over the last 100 years. This is the one celebration that we have that keeps urban and rural people connected. I can't wait to get there on Thursday.
