The Calgary Stampede is in full swing and although it’s touted as the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth, a recent Reddit post had some *pretty* interesting comments when users were asked to describe the Stampede in one single word.

The Calgary Stampede kicked off on July 8, with plenty of pancake breakfasts, classic food vendors, and even the tallest travelling Ferris wheel rolling into YYC for the festivities.
