Stampeders take notice – it’ll be a hot week so you’ll need to stay hydrated and take breaks in the shade when heading down to the grounds.

Officials have put together a few tips to survive the heat:

  • Consider rescheduling outdoor activities to cooler hours of the day.
  • Take frequent breaks from the heat, spending time outdoors at your house or at cooled public buildings (including malls or indoor pools).
  • Drink plenty of water and other non-alcoholic, non-caffeinated beverages to stay hydrated.
  • Do not leave any person or pet inside a closed vehicle, for any length of time.
