Get ready for the Stampede

In about two week's time, the Calgary Stampede will kick off with a parade in downtown Calgary, Alberta.

It is known as the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth, and promises lots of action and family fun. If you have a family, plan to hit the Stampede early on July 11 for free admission for the whole family...

The town literally goes crazy for the 10 days, with free pancake breakfasts all over town each day, and hat and boot clad bar patrons all night. Businesses get decked out in western attire and decorations and pretty much no one expects their employees to get serious work done - not all day long anyways :) Locals either embrace it, or get out of dodge...

Two years ago I went to one of the breakfasts near my house with the kids at the local community center - they held it on the tennis count with zero shade. It was 30 C and we were all drip sweating :) Anything for a free breakfast !
