Princesses in the 100th year Stampede Pre-Parade

Yahoo!  Princess Cinderella and Princess Sleeping Beauty were so excited to take part of the 100th year of the Calgary Stampede.  Never having had the chance to be part of the Calgary Stampede parade, this was a really big event for the princesses and the fact that it was the 100th year made it even more special!

The princesses joined Calgary’s Let’s Clown Around Alley #191 entry in the pre-parade.  It was a really, really, really early morning start….  With a 5am wake up call, the princesses got ready and met the clowns at the parade start at 7am.  All of the clowns and mascots looked fantastic and were all energized from to start a 3 hour parade route.

The princesses took in all of the sights, sounds and SMELLS of the parade!!!  The princesses were very thankful that they were part of the pre-parade (read:  BEFORE the many, many horses and animals who have their own street cleaners following them in the parade).

Lots of kids and toddlers were in attendance and the princesses were overjoyed to chat and have a quick picture taken with their fans.
