Find out where we’ll be and how you can win some fun prizes

Rumour has it there are two seasons in Calgary — Christmas and Stampede. And why's that? Because they're the times we gather as a community to celebrate the range and richness of Calgary's diversity and different perspectives.

But luckily there's no snow on the ground and Stampede is just around the corner. Can we get a "yahoo!"? 

This year our Stampede Posse, made up of hosts, staff and our CBC Kids mascot Ceebee, will be visiting six community pancake breakfasts around the city. We'll be broadcasting live from some of them and sharing stories with one another. Find out where we'll be and how you can win some fun prizes.
