    The city of calgary, Alberta is all set for 2 weeks of fun celebrating the Stampede. Check out my cityscape photo taken last week. The big bowl shaped building is the Saddledome on the Stampede grounds.

    Jan Arden is playing on the Coca-Cola stage the first night!! She is so good.

    Anyone planning to attend the Stampede? Get your cowboy gear ready! Also the free breakfasts around the city are so much fun.

    Yes Rodeo is part of the fun. They have a grandstand show every night after the rodeo competition. We went last year and I couldn't believe the entertainment complete with fireworks. Amazing talent.

    People from all over the world come to Stampede and the city pretty well shuts down for those 2 weeks.

    Thanks for the compliment.

    Jan Arden is great! I have a few of her CD's. When I lived in Toronto in 1995, I really enjoyed her music.

    Wish I could be there!
