Calgary Stampede .... never thought at the age of 58 I would be saying to my kids I had just seen KISS in concert, they were mighty impressed with that. You would never have known anything about the flooding, they had done an amazing job, no sand bags or marks on walls, nothing to show the devastation they had suffered. The fireworks and show were just breathtaking, no words just breathtaking !
Note from Frontier - The 2013 Stampede took place just after the disastrous floods.
