Danaye's Daily Dose for Friday, July 9th


Today is the opening day of the Calgary Stampede! The Parade gets going in an hour and of course it is a virtual parade this year, with floats and bands making their way through the grounds before the park opens and it being streamed live online. Katari Right Hand is this year’s Parade Marshall, a 17 year old woman from the Siksika First Nation who is also featured on the 2021 Stampede poster. Starting today and going until Tuesday, Frontline Workers can get free admission to the grounds, you just have to register for your tickets online.



It looks like there are a ton of Pancake breakfasts are happening in the usual spots like the grounds, Chinook Centre and Market Mall, but there are also a ton of community ones and there’s a website that breaks it all down for you!
