CALGARY, May 14 /CNW/ - With so many people looking to spend their
vacation dollars closer to home, the Calgary Stampede is stepping up with
amazing and exclusive Stampede experiences to help take the guesswork out of
planning their adventures at The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth, July 3 - 12.
The Calgary Stampede has introduced new GetAway value packages - which
include "Parade Day GetAway" (July 3 only), "Ladies GetAway," "Family
GetAway," and "The Complete GetAway" - along with a new way to avoid the
legendary lineups at Nashville North - the "Buck the Line" package.
"The Stampede offers so much to see and do that it can sometimes be
overwhelming, so we've designed full-experience packages that make it easy for
our visitors to enjoy an exclusive and complete Stampede get-away," says
Laurie Schild, vice-president, Marketing and External Relations. "For example,
if a family is looking for the ultimate experience on Parade Day, our Parade
Day GetAway package comes with transportation and reserved seating at the
Parade, Park admission and tickets to the rodeo of champions."
Whether for a group of friends looking to share in the fun or a family
wanting a convenient package that includes something for everyone, the
Stampede has designed GetAway packages to help guests get the most out of
their visit to Stampede Park.
The GetAway packages are designed to offer a convenient and affordable
way to live the Stampede experience, plus they come with great value-add
extras - from iPod shuffles to cowboy hats for the kids. All of the Calgary
Stampede's GetAway packages provide guests with a complete experience that
includes tickets to iconic events. For example, The Family GetAway option
offers up something only available to package purchasers: reserved seating for
Superdogs! The exclusive "Buck the Line" package features special access to
Nashville North (no waiting in line), park admission, a Rodeo ticket and food
and beverages. Only 1,000 "Buck the Line" packages will be sold.
