Irankhabar is proud to announce for the first time our participation in the Calgary Stampede Parade

Stampede parade is one of the most visited festivals that happens every year in Calgary. It is the greatest kickoff outdoor show on the Earth that brings a vast crowd of people and tourism from all across the world. Hence, different nationalities do their best to present their own countries in this parade. However, introducing Persian culture and history here in Calgary will play a prominent role in letting other nationalities get to know our Iran better.

More than 250,000 people line the streets of downtown Calgary every year for the Stampede parade. Most businesses close and residents toss away suits and ties for cowboy hats, boots and jeans for the duration of the celebration of the cowboy way of life. Humphries said the rodeo is her favorite part of Stampede.
"I honestly, first and foremost, love the rodeo," said Humphries.
"I love watching the chucks (chuckwagons) and as much as I think bull riders are insane, I enjoy watching them and I love the way this city transforms as well during Stampede.
