After a Canada Day related break last week, I’ve written a new column for Metro newspapers.

This week’s column focuses on the one and only Calgary Stampede Parade.  If you’re not in Calgary and you’re not familiar with the parade, this thing is HUGE.  Hundreds of thousands of Calgarians back the streets for hours upon hours to kick off the Calgary Stampede.  This  year’s parade was bigger than ever with the added bonus of Rick Hansen and The Royal Couple.

So I thought I would use my column this week to talk about all the things I love about Calgary Stampede Parade.  And yes, sometimes I use the term sarcastically.  It wouldn’t be written by me unless it had just a little sarcasm in it, right?

Pick it up on news stands, or click here to read it online.

Happy Stampede Everyone!


Here are some photos from this year’s parade with my family who are visiting from Montreal and New Brunswick!

The one and only shot I got of Prince William. Yes, they were moving that fast:

  1. Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Appreciate it
