This short shows how the city of Calgary celebrates Stampede Week, an annual event filled with things that celebrates the city's heritage. In the downtown area, only wagons, stagecoaches, and horses may be used for transportation. There are mock trials for horse thieves; Indian dances and other rituals; parades; square dancing; and other events. The week culminates with the world-famous rodeo, which, in addition to the standard events, includes a chuck wagon race. Written by

A name whose roots are embedded deep in the romance and traditions of the Old West: Calgary, once a rootin' tootin' Wild West town sprawled over the crossing of rangeland trails; today a bustling city in the heart of the Canadian Rockies.
