See future rodeo stars at Stampede Park

(Dave Will - 660 NEWS)

It’s a perfect fit, and a great opportunity for some spring break entertainment.

The future stars of Canadian rodeo are in Calgary this week as the Canadian Intercollegiate Rodeo Finals kicks off Thursday on Stampede Park.

College rodeo athletes coming together Thursday through Saturday at the 2,500 seat rodeo arena in the Agrium Building.

The Stampede’s Kristina Barnes says there’s no facility like this one for up close viewing of the sport.

“Something that we worked very hard on creating this facility, going to other places, seeing the best of the best and putting it all together in one place. There isn’t a bad seat in this building, and even if the person in front of you is wearing a cowboy hat, it’s made for that.”

Adult tickets at $21.95, kids just $5.50. You can get them online at calgarystampede.com or at the Stampede box office.
