Stampede 101 - Kids Day

Consistent with tradition, we went to Kids Day for the free admission and the free pancake breakfast. Uncle Brad and Auntie Katie were in town so we had a really big group. It seems you have 2 weather options for Kids Day -- Scorching Heat or Torrential Downpour. We got the former again this year, but it was still a great time.

Since we had free admission with our Grandstand tickets, we went back the next day to hit up the things that we had missed on Kids' Day. The buskers are always a favourite. The crowd was a bit lethargic, so I tried to make up for it with my enthusiasm. The performer appreciated my efforts enough that he interacted with us quite a bit during the show and let us pose for a picture afterwards. His show was outstanding.

But that wasn't the only show in town. Katie got to go up on stage to perform with the "Little Buckaroos". She learned a little song and got hat to wear for the performance. When her turn came to sing into the microphone she did fine, but afterwards we think she got a bit scared that she might have to do it again and decided to pull the chute and get out there. Really cute all the same.
