Boot Scoot on Over


From infinity and beyond, everyone looks forward to The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth. We hope you’re ready, because it kicks off tomorrow.
The Calgary Stampede is where city slickers and cowboys come together for 10 days of F-U-N, and there is plenty of opportunity for the little ones to get in on the action, too.

It would be a shame to spend all day boot scootin’ around the stampede grounds and not see it all, so we’ve compiled a rundown of what’s new for this year—especially for folks with little cowpokes in tow.

Take in the parade, as it’s not every year that we have royalty come to town. Score some seats in the shade (go early and send reinforcements if you must to hold your spot) and watch Will, Kate and Calgary’s finest march by. The popular BMO Kids’ Zone has moved next to the Agricultural buildings, so if you need a diversion, the kids can check out the professional freestyle soccer players, or meet characters from their favorite Treehouse TV shows. If Loonette from the Big Comfy Couch, Dorothy and Wags from The Wiggles, Chuck My Talking Truck, Barney or My Little Pony light up the eyes of your little cowboys or cowgirls, then make sure you stop by for that special Kodak moment.
