The Calgary Catholic School Districtís Stampede spirit was alive and kicking during the Calgary Stampede Centennial Parade on Friday, July 6, 2012.

The Board of Trustees has entered in the parade as participants for past three years, the first time being for the districtís 125th anniversary. This yearís parade featured 110 entries.
