It’s stampede season. And while we’re proud as a peacock about the 100 year-old event that defines our city internationally, we also have to carry on with our family routine. Only a certain amount of boot kickin’ and yee-hawing at the Calgary Stampede can derail us from our 8 o’clock bedtime goal. Here’s how we stampede:
The traditional kick-off parade is fun for kids who are a little bit older (say five plus). While it fits into our free category, it does require an early morning (aren’t you up anyway?) to find good seats’and remember to hold a spot close to a bathroom, especially for those that have to go…right now.
We also do the pancake breakfast. Consider downloading the free Flapjack Finder app. You can find the date, time and location’as well as extras like entertainment and kid-stuff’of each breakfast by using the app.
The farm animals are a big draw and your kids can get up close and personal with the animals in the Agriculture Centennial Celebration Zone.
And book a babysitter for a night out. With so many performances and parties in town, celebrating adult-style is a better way to get your rodeo on at this stampede.
