Went to another reception help at the Stampede.

Started with a visit with Randy Kaiser who kindly fueled us up with some Celtic beef smokies from his value chain.

Interesting neighborhood Randy is set up in.

Then some networking and schmoozing. (work)

We visited, exchanged business cards, gave politicians grief, ate and then skipped out. We decided to take in the Grand Stand show before going home.

The Calgary Stampede puts on a real spectacle.

I liked the band stung up in the air in a couple of pick up trucks.

Mrs. Per liked the girl in a bubble floating over the crowd.

They had acts in between set changes. These guys were kind of freaky.

Fire and fireworks traditionally end each day at the Stampede.

Randy did have a big black hat but was not carrying a weapon that I knew of. Sure would have been fun in those days. Randy was a little camera shy. We have to get to the top of the ridge to see the fireworks. Made a few trips to Scotchman hill/Frenchmens Bluff to take in the fireworks in my youth. Watching them from the grandstand wasn't a bad view. Sure hope it ends soon. Getting a little tuckered out. :wink:
