“The Calgary Stampede, which bills itself as The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth, is a large festival, exhibition, and rodeo held in Calgary, Alberta for 10 days every summer from early to mid-July. It is one of Canada’s largest annual events, and the world’s largest outdoor rodeo. It features an internationally recognized rodeo competition, a midway, stage shows, concerts, agricultural competitions, chuckwagon races, First Nations exhibitions, and pancake breakfasts around the city, among other attractions.” – Wikipedia
It was hot inough t’wifer a fence post.
It was so dry, th’ bushes follered th’ houn’dogs aroun’, eff’n ya git mah meanin’.
Ah felt like a tee totaller in th’ last chance saloon, as enny fool kin plainly see.
At th’ groun’s it was as noisy as a ca’f co’ral, ah reckon.
Tok was grinnin’ like a jackass eatin’ cactus.
Great moosic! Fry mah hide!
Great grub an’ compenny.
Thar was some Purdy outfits, some wif matchin’ purses
Yo’ kin jest see Pengrowth Saddledome in th’ back
The Budweiser Wagon.
Them houn’dogs were ackin like they were tryin’ t’chin th’ moon, as enny fool kin plainly see.
One mean Bronco, he had a nose yuh c’d sto’e a small houn’dog in, as enny fool kin plainly see.
He arched he’s back like a mule in a hailsto’m; he was travellin’ faster than bad noos at a church social, ah reckon.
Thar were trimenjus screens ev’rywhar, jest in case yo’ c’d’t see o’ hear fine
TransAlta’s “Light Up the Night” firewawks extryvaganza.
It was th’ bess firewawks show ah had see in a long time.
Stampede showgroun’ at night.
