A Look at the Calgary Stampede – “The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth”

Because the world famous Calgary Stampede has just started, World Footprints takes a look back at our time at the rodeo.

This rodeo spectacular IS the greatest outdoor show on earth. At Stampede you’ll find everything from Vegas & Broadway style shows to bull-riding, roping and an ice skating show with Olympic champions.  Of course, the flapjacks wrapped in bacon was one of the culinary staples.

This is a rodeo like no other.  Saddle up and give a big Yee-Haw!!
