I can’t believe Parade Day is here! Calgary weather can be tumultuous to say the least, but this year it looks like hot, clear skies are in order for the kick off of Calgary Stampede 2017!
For anyone wondering what to wear to parade day, this year I’m thinking shorts or a sundress. Load up on the sunscreen and water and make sure to take a light jacket like this ultra soft fringe one and hat to keep the sunburn away.
Other parade day tips- Get there early! The prelude starts around 7:30 with the parade around 9 am, you want to get a good seat and make sure to bring folding chairs, especially if you have little ones or elderly folks with you and the route is running backwards this year! Also, take the C-train, as most of downtown will be blocked off from the parade route by 7 am so getting into park, cab or uber will be tricky, have fun!
