I look forward each year to seeing the newest design.
I sent this card to my parental unit in Ontario. They have always wanted to come out to Calgary for the event but have not made it yet.
I am looking forward to the 10 days of pretending to be a cowgirl. The city becomes decorated with hale bales and paintings of cowboy life on windows. Everyone I mean almost everyone dresses up in cowboy attire. We head out to bars/saloons for beers and barbeque's. There are pancake breakfasts everywhere.The main event is at the Stampede grounds where the Chuckwagon races and rodeo take place every night.It is a fun event.
If you haven't been you should put it on your list of things to do.
