Wow, it feels like only yesterday that we had Stampede 2010. But, time goes on and we are well on our way in getting ready for the 99th edition of the Calgary Stampede as well as the upcoming holiday season. We have been testing and preparing our Holidays menus in our kitchens with Chef Derek Dale, as well as tasting new wines for the tables with David Patten and managers. We’ve also been planning our Holiday room themes with our in-house decor ladies, (Aurora Borealis in our Palomino Ballroom, New York City in our Halls, and A Traditional Christmas in our smaller rooms). Here are some pics of all the decoration and preparation that we have been doing around the park.  Enjoy, and if you’re on Park this holiday season, make sure to take some time to check these decorations out!
