The East Gate is the fastest way to get into the Stampede grounds.

You can avoid line-ups at the Stampede entrance if you park at the Ramsay School and take the short walk to the East Gate.

Here’s a map with directions from Ramsay School to the East Gate.

Parking is $20 for all-day parking, and $5 for fireworks parking (after 8:30 pm).

2nd Annual Hoe Down for Ward 9 on Wednesday July 4

June 28th, 2012

Councillor Gian-Carlo Carra sends the following invitation to next week’s Hoe Down for Ward 9:

Dear Neighbour,

In my efforts to be a different kind of politician, I’m trying to approach fundraising in a different way.

I’m leery of the ubiquity of $150 events that are attended solely by the development industry. The Ward 9 Hoe Down is my attempt to create an event that everyone can afford to come to, and that is such value for money (and so fun) that everyone wants to come.

I’d be honored if you came to the 2nd Annual Ward 9 Hoe Down with your family, neighbours, friends, and colleagues to celebrate the amazing community we’re so lucky to share.

A great meal, a great concert by T. Buckley, and a ton of fun all for $35 (it’s an Inglewood Party so bring your kids for free).

Order online at or email Lauren at

Thanks for your support and see you next Wednesday!

Let’s show Calgary how we embody our pride of place by collecting garbage along the banks of the river.
