The 100th Calgary Stampede kicked off this morning with the parade through downtown. It was great to see a new Leopard 2A4M CAN roaring down the streets. The new tanks are even louder than the old C1 and C2. There was also a Coyote and a Taurus ARV in the parade.
The Leopard in the parade will be heading down to Spruce Meadows after the parade for the weekend of horse jumping competitions.
On the Stampede grounds there is another Leopard 2A4M CAN, a LAV III, a G Wagon, and a Cougar EROC all as static displays and fully open to the public.
Pics to follow...but for a teaser here's a pic from the 1946 Stampede parade!
