I love the Calgary Stampede!
It’s not just the rides or the food (but both are pretty awesome!) For me, the Stampede is a ten-day celebration of agriculture—and since my grandparents are crop producers, I have a special connection to “the land.”
Every year, my entire family heads to the Stampede grounds to check out the rodeo, bite into some delicious (or strange) food, take a spin on the Zipper, and of course, tour the pavilions.
I actually can’t wait to see the Alberta Canola Producers’ Commission booth tomorrow. It’s going to be EPIC this year. Not only can you learn a lot about canola from the producers who take time away from the fields to talk to consumers about their crops (and answer any questions), this year, there are LIFE-SIZE 3D CHARACTERS from the Chase “Superman” Duffy comic series. There’s even one of me!
I’m so getting my picture taken with “statue me”—you should too! Put your picture on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter and tag @SupermanDuffy for a chance to win a signed set of the comics. That’s ten books!
Gotta Jet! Hope to see you at the Stampede. Wahoo!
