Met a couple of cowgirls who taught us everything about the Stampede, a real local insightwhich was awesome.
The final night finishes off with an amazing show – singing, dancing, comedians, cirque de sole style acts , aerial acrobatics and my favourite….. motorcross riding. They had 4 dirt bikes in a cage buzzing around each other perfectly time as to just miss each other. These guys were flying around the small cage. Watch my video to freak out.
Tips for travelers:
1. Calaway RV Park is awesome and has the lowest rates in Calgary ($32). They also offer transfers to the Stampede for $8.50 return!!
2. Don't buy seats for the Stampede, hang out in the general crowd, meet some cowboys (and gals) it is seriously so much fun. We bought seats and used them for about 30 mins the whole day…
