Not My First Rodeo: Ingrid Mosker

Tips from longtime Calgarians who have been going to the Stampede since they were kids.

 

 

Ingrid Mosker (left, red hat) and her sister at the Devonian Gardens after the Stampede Parade, 1981.

Name: Ingrid Mosker

Occupation: Piano teacher and stay-at-home mom.

I’ve lived in Calgary since: 1979 ( I was 3-and-a-half-years old when we moved here from Ottawa).

I’ve been going to the Stampede since: 1980

My favourite Stampede memory is: Getting up super early to find a spot on 9th Avenue for the parade with my sister Deirdre, dressed in our homemade matching denim outfits.

These days, my typical Stampede includes: Attending National Music Centre-hosted events with my husband Andrew.

My favourite Stampede attraction is: Live music at Nashville North, the Cowboys tent and the Coca Cola stage.

My favourite Stampede food is: Caramel peanut apples.

My favourite Stampede outfit is: Jeans and a tee.

Three things I recommend doing at the Stampede are: Dancing it out wherever you can. Seeing the art at the Western Showcase. Taking kids to the show dogs and sheep shearing.

One thing you should avoid is: Being in a hurry to get anywhere. Because you won’t get anywhere in a hurry at Stampede.

Last words of advice: Hydrate. Often.

The Calgary Stampede runs July 3 to 12, 2015. For information visit calgarystampede.com; follow on Twitter @calgarystampede
