Calgary Alberta, home of the Calgary Stampede!
This yearly, 10 day event attracts over one million visitors per year and features one of the world’s largest rodeos, a parade, midway, stage shows, concerts, agricultural competitions, chuck wagon racing and First Nations exhibitions.
This was my first time having the opportunity to be so heavily involved with the Stampede. I was asked to attend 10 days of stampede events, and additional events prior. I don’t think I could have had any more fun. Hanging out with people from all over the world, fellow Stampede members, cooking breakfast and most importantly, meeting some awesome dogs.
I would have to say, It’s the best day ever when there is a
petting Zoo at events!
I was honoured to start my stampede week off at the MRCA annual stampede BBQ. What a lovely evening up in a gorgeous part of our city. As the Mount Royal community gathers, with live music, activities and good food, I couldn’t think of a better way to kick off Calgary’s stampede week. Along side my pageant sisters, Little Miss Calgary, Junior Miss Calgary and Miss Calgary, we had a blast!
I want to give a big thank you to everyone who worked so very hard, to put on these outstanding events prior, and of course the stampede Committee for hosting “The Greatest Outdoor Show On Earth.” I would like to thank my agency for pointing me in the right direction, and my family and friends for helping me along the way, on my Miss Teen Calgary journey.
