If you haven't headed down to the midway to try one of this year's weird and wacky food items, tomorrow might be the perfect day to it. The Calgary Stampede has just announced that it is waiving the admission fee for its final day of festivities.
“We are humbled and grateful for the support we have received from our community,” said Calgary Stampede president and chairman of its board Steve McDonough in today's announcement. “This celebration is for Calgarians, and we would like to invite everyone to ride with us one more time on Sunday.”
Outside of Calgarians' last chance to eat and drink throughout the midway, the Nashville North stage will host its final series of performances–country singers Kelsi Mayne (2 p.m.) (7 p.m.), Andrew Hyatt and Gord Bamford (8:30 p.m.). If you do find yourself in the NN tent, know that both the french fry corn dog and the dill pickle lemonade are just a stone's throw away.
Stampede Park opens at 10:00 a.m., and the festival will offer free admission until midnight. Calgary Stampede admissions are subject to grounds capacity.
