the 100th annual calgary stampede

the grounds
at the rodeo
I thought this was hilarious.

100th annual
I like cowboys.
some men of the wild west. They made fun of me for about 10 minutes straight when I said I was from Ontario

This past weekend the boyfriend and I left our little town at 5 am and drove the 5 hour drive to Calgary for the 100th annual Stampede. Being a new resident of the wild west I thought I should see what all the fuss was about. 
Not only was it super fun it was a BEAUTIFUL day outside. Got to see a rodeo for the first time, saw about a million REAL cowboys and cowgirls and had wonderful carnival food (aka: donuts, deep fried mars bar and fresh lemonade). Needless to say I'm hitting the gym HARD this week. 

p.s Sorry for the lower quality photos, I had to bring my old camera since I didn't feel like carrying my Nikon in 30+ weather ha ha. 

Did anyone else get to see the Stampede? 

oh and outfit details: Dress: Urban Outfitters (old) // Boots: Frye // Necklace: Forever 21 // Watch: Michael Kors // Bracelet: H&M

  2. How fun! You got some great photo's too. I've never been to the Stampede grounds however I went on a Stampede pub crawl years ago and the Girls Gone Wild people were there asking us girls to do "whatever we felt like" while they were filming. I told them NO WAY! Creepers.

  3. Looks like a fun time. Never been but would love to see the rodeo.
