Calgary Pride 2009


00025

Calgary is thought to be the refuge of the urban cowboy. Cowboy hats aren’t uncommon, the Stampede is always a huge draw, and oil’s the game. So on Labour Day weekend (a scheduling gamble made to avoid rainy weather, which has plagued prior Prides held in the summer), Stephen’s Avenue and Olympic Park had a Pride parade with a classic Calgary touch of BBQ sauce. More photos under the fold.
