Howdy Calgary!

If you missed out on the opportunity to Light Up our fine city last weekend… you’re going to have another chance to enter!

The Calgary Stampede and the Next Generation Committee are looking for one lucky family to ceremonially set off the fireworks using the Stampede Plunger this Saturday July 14th.  The 12-minute show will kick off between 11:00 and 11:30PM. Five international-scale firework displays occur at the same time around the city, making it the largest and most sophisticated firework event ever produced in Canada.

So there you have it everyone! Yet another way to come together as a city as we celebrate this special 100th anniversary of the Calgary Exhibition and Stampede. Want your family to be a part of this exclusive moment of our Stampede history?? Just send us a message on Twitter @CS_NGC stating why you think you should be selected, and be sure to include the hashtag #LUTC. Don’t have Twitter? Then send us an email to and we’ll ensure we include you in the running as well.

Good luck to all! Yahoo!
