Between the denim on denim outfits and cowboy-hatted patio partiers, the community spirit of Stampede is definitely alive in YYC. There are so many cool activities happening this weekend that are inspired by both the World’s Greatest shows on earth and the World’s Greatest Love Story — double trouble in the BEST way for date nights with bae. Let’s keep that hype energy and Stampede playfulness going hot into the weekend with our Top 5 Weekend Picks!
