Execs Say Calgary Stampede Will Go On As Scheduled Despite Saddledome Flooding
Published June 25, 2013
THE SHOW MUST GO ON: Calgary Stampede CEO Vern Kimball yesterday said that going ahead with the event "is a vital show of defiance in the face of disaster." He added, "We'll deliver the Stampede to take a break from pumping water from their houses." Kimball said that they "fully intend to recover the entire Stampede Grounds in time for the July 5 opening." He added that they are "not ruling out concerts ... at the Scotiabank Saddledome." Kimball said that calling off the Stampede "wasn't an option." He said, "Throughout our entire history, we have never cancelled a show despite two wars and a depression" (CALGARY SUN, 6/25).
