It's that time of year again! - Time for Stampede! Calgary Stampede, that is. It's one of those events that has recently made its appearance on my bucket list.
Calgary Stampede is an annual rodeo, exhibition and festival held every July in Alberta, and is touted as "The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth." For ten days, the stampede attracts over one million visitors with its rodeo, parade, midway, stage shows, concerts, agricultural competitions (ooh la la), chuckwagon racing (double ooh la la) and First Nations exhibitions.
Here's a little behind the scenes video of the 2012 Calgary Stampede:
