Stampede 2019

I go to the Stampede almost every year, but for some reason have never thought to take photos of it at night. So I just discovered how pretty everything is at dusk/ twilight, with the bright lights of the midway contrasting against the deep blue skies.

We went twice this year, and I got fat on overpriced carnie food (cereal milk sugar mini donuts with fruit loop whipped cream, octopi on a stick, caesar popsicles, mini donut popsicles, avocado soft serve in a pineapple bowl, wild boar bacon and elk smokie), won some prizes at Whac-a-mole, and roamed the midway wondering why so many were dressed like they were auditioning for a spot on Canada's Next Top Ho. But whatever, you do you Calgary. #youknowyoureoldwhen...
