One of the pubs on Stephen Avenue in downtown Calgary was recently all dressed up for what would have been the Calgary Stampede. The fair and rodeo’s usual activities were cancelled this year due to COVID-19.
Although the COVID-19 pandemic put practically all of the Calgary Stampede’s activities on hold this year, the organization put on a fireworks display on what would have been the first and last days of the fair/rodeo.
Here was the view from Scotsman’s Hill in Ramsay on the night of the second show on Sunday, July 12, 2020.
This Yahoo sign in the heart of Stampede Park is one of many installed around Calgary to promote and celebrate the Stampede. Behind it is a portion of the sculpture On the Banks of the Bow and the Scotiabank Saddledome arena.
