CALGARY, June 6, 2012 /CNW/ - Authorized by the Calgary Stampede, and written by Alberta Centennial Medal winner Wendy Bryden, The First Stampede of Flores LaDue is a cultural history of the west told through the extraordinary life of World Champion ladies trick-roper Flores LaDue. LaDue's love for rodeo promoter Guy Weadick, which began among the rough-and-tumble vaudevillians in the first Wild West shows, endured through North American performances in the small-time and big-time circuits and culminated in the wide open plains and ranches of the West, resulted in the establishment of the greatest outdoor show on earth, The Calgary Stampede.
Admission is FREE.
