The Calico Trio

I'm writing to tell you a bit about my husband, Alfie Ogston, who was born and raised in our great city!  Alfie started entertaining for the Stampede even prior to this Herald photo from 1966.  The Calico Trio was a big hit especially during Stampede Week - as you can imagine.  Alfie also starred on the Calgary Safety Round Up Show for many years, performing on the grandstand and around the city.  He spent the balance of his summers performing around the country.  He's still very involved with Stampede, hosting a customer Stampede breakfast complete with complimentary bleachers for his customers at the Crystal Glass location on 9th Avenue & 9th Street.  The Crystal Glass float will be back in the parade again this year, too.
