Each year, the Queens’ Alumni committee and Agriculture Education committee team up to host Giddy Up Aggie Days, a free event for special needs children and their families.
The 2015 Giddy Up Aggie Days breakfast kicked off bright and early at 7:30 a.m. in the Stampede Corral — past Calgary Stampede queens and volunteers from Maxim Power Corp. worked hard to feed more than 700 registered families and their caregivers.
We saw a lot of happy faces munching on pancakes as notable guests, such as the Stampede Queen and Princesses, past Indian Princesses and several rodeo queens, mixed and mingled through the crowds.
After breakfast, families got the opportunity to have their faces painted and posed for portraits at our photo booth, before getting exclusive access to all the interactive agriculture exhibits and animals at Aggie Days.
Agriculture is a multi-faceted industry that touches our daily lives in the form of food, agri-food products, clothing and pharmaceuticals. Giddy Up Aggie Days is such a wonderful way to share this important information with our guests and allow all Albertan youths to have the opportunity to make meaningful rural connections.
It was a fantastic and fun morning! We thank all the families who came out to spend Giddy Up Aggie Days with us, as well as Maxim Power Corp for sponsoring this wonderful event.
