The culture of Stampede

Boots, buckles, cowboy hats and wrangler shirts – it’s Stampede time here in Calgary and there’s a cowboy hat on every corner.

For a city girl like myself I just love it when the country comes to the city.

The photo above is from one of my visits to the Chuckwagon barns. (The black buckets in the foreground there are their dinner getting set up for them for after the race. Note: curious horse on the right)

It’s been such a great first Stampede that it’s hard to pick one experience to sum it all up, so perhaps I’ll share with you the most recent.

As I found myself driving down Macleod Trail today behind the native horseback parade I couldn’t help but call out an exuberant show of support. ‘Right On!’ I yelled out to a young boy in ceremonial dress – and without so much as a pause he smiled back at me and called out ‘Right on you too!’.

This interaction for me is a typical show of the kind of well wishing and regard that is such a part of the culture of Stampede – and indeed of the people who live in this great city.
