It’s that time of year again in Medicine Hat. The annual Stampede hits the ground this weekend. The rodeo goes Thursday to Saturday at the grounds, Kiddies Day on Friday and grandstand shows Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday nights. The parade gets underway Thursday morning at 9 and pancake breakfasts are scattered around the city Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.
