Not sure what to do with the kiddos today? Take ’em to the Stampede for super cheap this morning. Wednesday July 10, is @bmocanada kids’ day, which means you can bring your mini cowpoke to the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth for free! Continuing in the long kids’ day tradition, if you hit the grounds between 7-9am, admission for children under 12 and their accompanying adults are totally free. If you can’t hit the 9am deadline you don’t completely miss out, because the kidlets are only $2 for the whole rest of the day. If you don’t have kids you can bring your nieces and nephews down to the grounds, get them all hopped up on cotton candy, candy apples, and spinny rides before bringing ’em back to their parents without spending an arm and a leg. It’s a great day for everyone involved!
