Calgary Stampede 2017

Hello friends,

As most of you know, the Calgary Stampede has just ended. The Calgary Stampede runs from July 6 to the 17th. It is insane and jam packed with fun things to do. There is a million and one food trucks, which are delicious and very cool looking, many rides, a big petting zoo, drinks, music, games, shows and much much more!

This year was my first time going because I have never been in Calgary during the Stampede before, but now that I live here I felt obligated to head downtown and see what all the hype was about! The crowds are massive, but it is an experience I feel that everyone should have. What I will say though is bring lots of cash because you will blow through it quite quickly! Parking was $40!! However, now i know that taking the train to the event is much cheaper then paying for parking…rookie mistake.

I hope you guys enjoy the pictures of all the people, food and fun that was the Calgary Stampede!

Fun Fact: they were having a pizza eating contest at that pizza stand… I bet they felt sick after eating so much pizza in the hot weather!
