Vacay.ca Gears Up for the Stampede
Jody Robbins of Vacay.ca has produced a guide to all the attractions and must-see events at the 2013 Stampede. The top draws include the opening parade, featuring Parade Marshal Chris Hadfield, Canada’s most popular astronaut, and the KISS concerts.
Robbins writes: “Time to dust off yer boots, and get ready for the annual urban cowboy extravaganza that is the Calgary Stampede. After all the hoopla surrounding last year’s centennial, the Stampede’s getting back to basics, as evidenced by this year’s theme, Stampede 101. Returning to its roots, this new century in Stampede history will focus on the land, the people and the animals that come together to make this event the greatest outdoor show on earth.”
