CBC, Calgarians help flood victims with Stampede block party
Back in the Saddle fundraising blitz runs all day at Westmount Boulevard broadcasting centre
CBC Calgary is hosting a Back in the Saddle block party on Thursday, a fundraising blitz for victims of the flooding that devastated the city and southern Alberta last month.
The day-long festivities include the annual CBC Co-op Stampede Breakfast, more free food throughout the day, and lots of live music — including a performance by country legend Ian Tyson.

CBC Radio is broadcasting live from the event all day. From 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., TV anchor Carla Beynon will host CBC News Calgary from outside the building.
