This week at ABC Wednesday, C is front and centre.
is, of course, for Canada
- my homeland and nationality, of which I am very proud.
is also for Calgary
and the Calgary Stampede.
Our honeymoon, 15 years ago, was spent in Calgary
, a place I had visited many times before.
But I had never been to the Stampede. We had a grand time visiting the city and the stampede.
The first Calgary Stampede was held in 1912. Now it is held for 10 days in early July and is called "the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth".
It began with a parade downtown and pancake breakfasts.
There were so many competitions and exhibits to see. We watched bull riding, chuck wagon racing, bronco riding
and toured buildings and exhibits.
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Be sure to visit here
to see what others around the world did for C.
