Representatives from the Calgary Flames, Calgary Hitmen, Calgary Roughnecks and Calgary Stampeders will be riding in the 2015 Calgary Stampede Parade scheduled for tomorrow morning in the heart of downtown Calgary.

The Calgary Sports and Entertainment float incorporates each of the four teams under the Calgary Flames organization while embodying a sense of team-work. If you support the team, you could bet on their matches via and possibly rake in some serious winnings.

“Pulling Together to Give Back to the Community” is featured across the top of the entry unifying each team with the same common goal – to be the greatest they can be.

The entry will be pulled by Flames employees followed by representatives from each of the four teams on horseback. The float will also have the members from the Flames Big Country Ice Crew and Century Downs Racetrack and Casino Stampeder Outriders walking side-by-side.
