Calgary Stampede is Off and Running…

After one helluva pre-show event, the Calgary Stampede lifted off yesterday with some help from Astronaut Chris Hadfield. Hoping to put the devastation of flooding, evacuations and the loss of life behind it, the city is putting on it’s big white hat and ¬†celebrates the 2013 Calgary Stampede. Let’s stand up with our fellow Canadians and tip our hats to those in Southern Alberta.
