Celebrating 15 years of play!!

Celebrating 15 years of play with you! We had a blast celebrating our birthday, it was definitely a party to remember! #Vivo15

Thank you for coming out to play with us despite the crazy weather! Here are some things that happened at our 15th birthday. 

Anniversary Cupcakes!  

What’s a birthday without any cake? Delicious Mini Cupcakes sponsored by Save On Foods were distributed to the party guests by our lovely volunteers. We had two flavours, Vanilla or Chocolate Fudge, both were a huge hit! 

Sing! Sing! Sing! 

The event started with the singing of O’Canada with Raquel Kobe & Rodnie Valerio a.k.a R2 on SoundCloud. 

Then throughout the night, we also had entertainment from the Lisa Dodd Trio playing a total of 3 sets.

So you think you can dance?  

Test your dancing skills on our Stampede dance floor!  

Vanessa Paglione led the crowd in a total of 3 different line dances and totally killed it on the dance floor! 

Hot Dog or Burger?  

Our stampede BBQ was prepared by Ernie's Mobile BBQ!  

The meals were served till 8pm, consisting of hamburger or all-beef hot dog, baked vegan beans, and lemonade.  

Shoutout to some of our Stampede Kick-Off sponsors;  

Cedar Glen Homes, Landform, Benchmark, Dialog, Lan Solutions, Costplan. 

Thank you again for a fantastic night!! Here's to many more years of play!! 
Start getting ready for next year's Stampede Fiesta and grab some inspo from our Pinterest!
