This postcard shows the Chuckwagon races at the Calgary Stampede.  The Stampede is a 10 day event which includes a rodeo, rides, games and other agricultural activities.  People come from all over the world to enjoy the fun!

Caption: Chuckwagons may have been invented to provide food and supplies for cowboys out on the range, but here at the Calgary Stampede they serve a different and more exciting purpose.  The chucks and their crews barrel around the track in a nail biting competition, making chuckwagon racing the signature event at the stampede.
