Calgary Stampede; the greatest outdoor show in the world

I spent part of the weekend down at the Stampede Grounds, everyone in western Showcase was busy getting their part of the show ready.  The Western Photo Gallery looks great, the photos are hung, and I have to say that the jury panel did an amazing job picking work this year.

I am looking forward to the Stir-up event on Wednesday night, and possibly walking around the stampede grounds to see what is left to be done. I have ordered my “hell or high-water” t-shirt, and I am looking forward to watching the rodeo and  chuck wagon races on the new track they have been building since the flood.

Past stampede photos and activities.
