Calgary Stampede shows Toronto a white hat welcome

Travel Alberta and the Calgary Stampede presented #Toronto with a western welcome featuring hundreds of white cowboy hats lined up in Yonge-Dundas Square. The Wednesday May 9, 2012 event was to promote the Centennial Anniversary of the Calgary Stampede; one hundred years from 1912 to 2012. There was also Juno award-nominated band Hollerado onstage to keep the visitors entertained while people entered the contest and eTalk's hosts Tanya Kim and Ben Mulroney presided over the hat contest.
Two hundred wristbands were given out to anyone that wanted to sign up and then they were invited to grab a hat. If the hat contained a red envelope they won a VIP package to the Calgary Stampede. “The prize package for two includes: airfare, two nights accommodation, tickets to see Garth Brooks at the Saddledome, two day Thrill package for the Calgary Stampede and much more.”
