A Memorable Stampede Date

A few Stampede’s ago when I first met the man who was to become my husband. He asked me if I would like to go to the Stampede with him. I hadn't been there since I was a kid and wondered if I would still have there.

He surprised me with tickets to see Brad Paisley and it was the greatest experience – not only was Brad Paisley an amazing artist, but we had a fantastic time walking around the Park after and didn’t leave until 1 a.m.! I saw so many old friends from my junior high and high school, and played several games and visited BMO Centre.

It was one of the best days of my life simply because I didn't expect any of it. I still look at pictures of that day and remember the great time we had. Now, my husband and I have a tradition of visiting the Stampede every year and plan to not miss a single one!

Happy 100th Stampede, Calgary!
