Yahoo! The Calgary Stampede is finally here! The Stampede will be celebrating their 100th anniversary this year (July 6-15, 2012).

The Centennial year is no different and thanks to Value Deals and Value Days, the Stampede promises to be one of the most affordable outings this summer.

Promise to save more bucks than a bronc. West of the Coke stage and North of the Big Four building you’ll find a re-creation of a Calgary street circa 1912. It’s a cool and comfortable place to relax and find some of the best food deals and bottled water prices during the Calgary Stampede. Daily: 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. (July 8 and 11 open at 9 a.m.)

Staying on top of all the free breakfasts around town isn’t easy. Finding your way to each of them is another story. So if you’re a pancake junkie and need to get your fix, check out where you can search for flapjacks, download recipes or share your event with friends and neighbours. We even made a flapjackfinder app so can always find the free and flat closest to you.
