Calgary Downtown and the Calgary Stampede Park

With beautiful weather, we went downtown today to get a few things done.   A little sightseeing and while in the area, I wanted to go in a few ‘shops’.  🙂    First we went to the Calgary Stampede Park where they were having an Expo for the ‘big’ race this Sunday. After paying $15.00 to park, we found the Expo a huge disappointment.   In DC and in Jax the Expo’s are huge and you can find anything you are looking for.   This one had 3 vendors with clothing, 2 with shoes, and the rest were advertising the upcoming races in their areas, etc.  So we left and spent time walking around the Park Grounds.   Wonderful statues, etc.
