Calgary Stampede Parade 2012: We're Greatest Together

Prepare to be entertained by the Centennial Calgary Stampede Parade!

The world-class Parade kicks-off the ten-day Centennial celebration on July 6. The Parade will feature entries that best showcase the theme, We’re Greatest Together.

“We are very proud to present the Centennial Calgary Stampede Parade,” says Susanne Huggard, Calgary Stampede Parade committee chair. “This year, we are seeking applications which best exemplify how communities come together through creativity, community, heritage, celebration and giving,” she adds.

This year’s Parade theme, We’re Greatest Together, encourages the people of this great city, province and country to come together for an unforgettable Stampede Parade. The Parade will feature intricate floats, marching bands, western riders and other that showcase how we’re greatest together.

The Parade will be presented in the following sections:

• Creativity; with voice, music and movement, and inspire others to do the same.
• Community; different groups with a common goal to learn, share and grow.
• Celebration; by representing and sharing achievements, passions, goals and accomplishments.
• Heritage; by sharing history to help foster understanding and bringing people together to help build a stronger foundation for the future.
• Giving; to sustain communities that nurture and support peoples, passions and goals.

Parade applications are encouraged to exemplify the values of We’re Greatest Together and demonstrate how they bring people together to form communities. Applications are due Friday, March 16 and must be received prior to 4 p.m. MST. To apply for entry into the 100th Calgary Stampede Parade, visit calgarystampedeparade.com.
