Events kick off this weekend, with the 23rd Annual Chili Cook-off downtown. I'm pleased to say that I get to judge at this event again this year, and I'm really looking forward to it.

As can be expected, there are several pancake breakfasts going on as well as theme days at the Stampede grounds. Here is the schedule for those events.
The parade will be next Thursday, July 26 at 9am and here is the parade route map:
