Calgary Stampede Agriculture, Day One

It's day one of the Calgary Stampede. Will and Kate made their appearance in front of 350,000 starstruck spectators at the annual Stampede Parade. The crowds have started pouring through the gates, onto the midway, and through the barns. Agrium Ag-tivity in the City is hosting fabulous exhibits to educate the masses about where their eggs, milk, cereals, and meat come from. The miniature donkeys, llamas, sheep, goats, and ducks are settling in at the Country Critters display. The blacksmiths are working away in the Big Top and the heavy horses are being diligently prepared by their owners.

I'm also settling in with the Stampede Agriculture Media Committee as a social media intern. These ladies (and one gentlemen) have the job of communicating Stampede Ag stories with media outlets and the public. It's a great opportunity for me to network with people in the field I'm hoping to get into!

I look forward to this week all year. It's great to be on the media end of things and making sure people are hearing about the great exhibits Stampede Agriculture has to offer.
