First timer first day report

Wow what a first day. We arrived in town last night at b&b headed straight for parade this morning we arrived downtown around 8.30 I wouldn't bother getting there early if u dont want to sit.we got fantastic viewing spot if u prepared to stand for the 2hrs parade took.was great parade u shouldn't miss it! After we walked to stampede grounds easy walk ,anyone could do. We arrived an hr before rodeo but had to go to will call centre to get tix.getting into grounds was easy then had to go to another will call centre to pick up tix. For rodeo .very incompetent young staff trying their best , after long waits got tix. Sorted and got seated just in time!! After we had short wander tru midway then to Wild West showBUT then the rain BEGAN!!!! Wow serious rainfall. The show was affected but they did there best . We left grounds about 7pm. Hope all goes ahead as planned whether not looking good😢

Thanks so much for sharing your experiences! Sorry about the rain, not much we can do for you about that.

It's supposed to be nicer by Tuesday, which is when I'm hoping to make it to the Stampede.
