Love it or hate it there's no escaping that it's that time of year again. The Calgary Stampede!!!
I never thought I'd love it the way that I now do after being a regular of the Nashville North crowd for the first few years (for reals), then loathing it for a few more to being in awe of Super Dogs to now working downtown and just embracing the Stampede way of life in the core for the 10 days.
I don't participate in much outside of some work functions (it's too damn expensive otherwise...) but do try to get to the grounds each year to taste test the latest freaky eats available that pique my interest and for the epic people watching. For this final year I'll be checking out the sights, sounds and smells of the ground this Sunday and may pick up some new duds from CS Mercantile. Boom!
