Saw the item on CTV news last night about the Stampede. Reports are that attendance is way down this year, but it sounds like your bar is seeing alot of business. I was hoping to see you on the news!
We here in Montreal are winding down to the last day of the Jazz Festival, but gearing up for the first day of the Just For Laughs Festival. The fun never ends all summer in Montreal!
I haven't seen attendance figures for the actual Stampede rodeo and "grounds", but I do know a hotel room is nearly impossible to find, and judging from our bar business the first couple of days, it looks as good as every year.
Sure there is some downturn on US visitors, because of the "mad cow" thing, SARS, and the sluggish US economy.
