Default Stampede to Calgary

In the travel section of our Sunday paper is a whole spread on the Stampede to Calgary. It mentions something called "the half mile of He**". Maybe we can get Kuki to sponsor a Cruisemates chuckwagon !

Stories on Banff and Heritage Park Historical Village. Good reading.

The Calgary Stampede was a huge part of my life for the 30 years I was in the bar business. That's because it was our busiest week of the year

There's a parade downtown that kicks of the 10 day celebration, and it ended at the door to my bar, which made for a wild day. Here's a pic of our last Stampede before we sold out.... taken 10 minutes after the doors opened.


The City does embrace the "Stampede Spirit" and spirits . It's certainly a great time of year to visit, and including a trip to the Canadian Rocky Mountains is a must.
