There was some rain, there was some cold and there was some sun and heat.

In other words, it was a normal Stompede at Evergreen Park.

Normal also meant thousands of people flocked to chuckwagon and rodeo events at J.D.A. Raceway at Gordon Badger Stadium May 25-29 for the largest annual event held in the area.

Toss in some great acts at the beer garden, a midway and an art show and sale and it all added up to a great time for those thousands who made the short trip to the southern outskirts of the City of Grande Prairie over five days.

The World Professional Chuckwagon Association Dash For Cash Sunday night, an almost dead-heat between three wagons, was an appropriate way to end Stompede – which started in 1978 at the old fairgrounds on the east side of the city.

Check out Billy Melville’s story about the WPCA Stompede championship run here.

Bite The Dust All Pro Chuckwagons, the ponies, also performed as part of the evening show. You can see those results here.

The Canadian Professional Rodeo Association offered up some great performances Wednesday to Sunday including, for the first time at Stompede, Ladies Breakaway Roping. You can check out all of the rodeo results here.

Looking forward to Stompede 2023? Follow them through their website here.
