It's been a VERY eventful week here in the city of Calgary. The annual Stampede celebrations kicked off on the 4th of July, and are still going strong over the upcoming weekend. Plenty of pancake breakfasts and mini-donuts have been consumed, and many concerts have been attended, but there's still more to come! Lil Nas X spotted exploring Calgary before he takes on the Stampede tonight.
The long-awaited day has finally arrived. Of all the huge concerts announced for this year's Stampede, perhaps one of the biggest and most anticipated would be none other than Lil Nas X taking on the Cowboys Music Festival.
Just this afternoon, the singer took to Instagram to post the above photo of him posing with a massive sculpture of horses. To anyone else, the sculpture may not mean much, but if you're a Calgarian, you definitely recognize it from the YYC International Airport.
Although we're not sure how long he'll be in town for, we hope that Lil Nas X gets the chance to explore our beautiful city, or at least try some of this year's wicked Stampede food.
The Old Town Road singer has two shows that you can grab tickets for today - one in the early afternoon at the Cowboys Tent (tickets are nearly sold out and will cost you $40), and he'll also be hosting a party at Cowboys Dance Hall tonight (tickets for this are just $20).
If you have yet to hit up the 2019 Calgary Stampede, this weekend is your last chance! Other stars that you'll have the chance to see at Cowboys this weekend include former cast members of RuPaul's Drag Race on Saturday, and Juice WRLD on Sunday!
You can grab tickets for all the exciting Cowboys Music Festival concerts and events at this link. Happy Stampeding!

Ontario Superior Court Justice Bruce Thomas ordered the doors of The Church of God in Aylmer, Ontario, to be locked from the outside, CBC News reports. The church is to remain closed until Ontario's gathering limits allow public indoor gatherings with a 30% capacity.
The church's Pastor Henry Hildebrant, and Assistant Pastor Peter Wall, as well as the church itself, were fined $48,000 in total, with an additional $69,000 in legal fees.
The decision was made following the contempt ruling against the church on April 30, according to Global News
It was based on a live stream of a service held at the Church of God on April 25, where around 100 people are seen without masks or social distancing — at least two people were arrested at the church on this same day for charges ranging from obstruction to assault.
