Calgary Stampede is a 10 day summer event that will be celebrating its centennial next year.

THIS YEAR THE Stampede took place between the 8-17 of July. Part rodeo, part county fair, the event brings serious horse riding, pageantry, and carnival rides together with music, First Nations people performing traditional dances, and tournaments. This year, $2 million was awarded in prizes in rodeo tournaments with categories like barebacking, horse cutting, and tie-down roping.

Here are a few shots from my day at the 99th annual Calgary Stampede, from noon to night.
