VIP View to the Calgary Stampede Parade Meetup

Stampede is a huge deal in Caglary so we will be updating you with great events coming up. To start off I will be hosting a meet up event for the kick off to the stampede with a VIP view of the parade in front of the Fairmont Palliser. We will set the time for 7:30 am directly in front of the vallet by the stairs. This is the perfect place to get a great view of the parade and afterwards we can all enjoy a coffee in the hotel prior to heading off to work!

Please keep in mind there will be closed roads and limited access if you arrive late so come early!

    Great view of the parade, met some lovely people. The only thing for next time is we need to figure out a better way to recognize our group members at an event with a huge crowd. Open to ideas...

    Hi group I ran into a couple of you this morning but not everyone... I am sorry if I missed you as I had to go back to work a little earlier than expected but I really hope everyone got a great view of our Stampede parade! Next event we need to find a great way to recognize each other...name tags? Special shirt? What are your ideas?

    I am excited about joining this group but I am not going to the Stampede parade. Alhough I am from the West Coast and now live in Calgary, I have more Stampede outfits and hat than most people. I have the day off and I will watch athe parade on TV. If there are any events gong on ater the parade or so - let me know.

    This sounds like a lot of fun! I have never been to the Calgary Stampede before and would love to go!
    I have a few days to see what the Stampede is all about before I go away to Mexico for 7 days. :)
