The Strathmore Stampede is held annually on this weekend. As Canada's third largest rodeo, the rodeo is a big draw and boost to the local economy. What I find particularly fascinating about the stampede is the Running with the Bulls! Yes, you read that correctly. (You can check out videos from past years on YouTube. Be warned: they will probably make you cringe.) I blogged about this event a while ago, when I'd briefly contemplated having my heroine, Claire, in Devin's Second Chance sign up for a similar event, but she screamed at me that no matter how much she wanted to grab life by the horns, she wasn't going to actually do it. Despite Claire's resistance, I do make a passing reference to this rodeo in Devin's Second Chance.
All I can say to that is "people are crazy..."
