Yee-haw! The history of the Calgary Stampede, the greatest outdoor show on earth

I’ll be attending this year’s Calgary Stampede, which kicks off this weekend (as the name suggests) in Calgary, Alberta.

For those curious about “The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth” (which is the Stampede’s official slogan), watch this video created for the 100th year anniversary in 2012. Also check out archival photos of the stampede below, curtosey of the Calgary Stampede Historical Committee.
