Every summer there is always a big hype in the beginning of July almost around the world when the western theme, cowboys and cowgirls come out to play. The special thing this year is that STAMPEDE has been around for 100 years since 1912 which is amazing for the city of Calgary to see. We feel such a part of big history celebrating this biggest show on Earth. For many years, Stampede Goers have always geared up for Stampede week, businesses and companies in Calgary like to help celebrate the event by having their workers dress up, the western theme set up everywhere. Check out Calgary Stampede’s WEBSITE to keep your schedule updated about what’s going on during the days for every day of this week.
Yesterday morning the parade kicked off and it was very long, juicy and informative! Thousands of people woke up really early and lined up along 9th Ave to get ready for the great parade. After a great Stampede year in 2011 with the royals visiting, the hype is still around and most likely won’t die for another 100 years.
