Yahoo!! Or is it yeehaw!?

The 2018 Stampede is a fun and exciting 10 days in Calgary, and The Salvation Army is there every year to celebrate with the city with a number of events.

On Friday July 6, The Salvation Army Glenmore Temple Band marched in the parade – what a scorcher! The next morning, we held a free Stampede Pancake Breakfast at our Barbara Mitchell Family Resource Centre, complete with fun events for the kids, live entertainment from the Glenmore Temple Band and the┬áCanadian Staff Songsters (all the way from Toronto), and special visits from the Stampede Royalty, and Harry the Horse. Even that strong wind didn’t stop the party!

Saturday afternoon, we played a free concert on Stephen Avenue, and another one later that night at Glenmore Temple.

Thank you to everyone who came out to the breakfast, or enjoyed one of our band’s performances!
