Calgary Stampede Breakfast
A tradition of Stampede week is to go to a "Stampede Breakfast" complete with coffee and typically pancakes with maple syrup provided free by businesses. A marvellous way for the people of the city to get into the Stampede mood wearing their western gear including boots and hat. So we went to the breakfast sponsored by the Canadian Broadcasting Commission (CBC). We ate pancakes, tried our hand at rope twirling and listened to the mayor address the crowd. A lot of light-hearted fun.
