The greatest outdoor show on earth is winding down Sunday and celebrating its greatest turnout. The Stampede set several same day attendance records this week as well as a new high for overall attendance, likely exceed 1.3 million people when the final tickets are counted.
Even the rain didn't slow things down Sunday. Demand for souvenirs, fair food and rides are all up.
While stampede goers took away all kinds of experience this year, few will have a better story to tell down the road than Dannah Pituello and Stephen Cote. They won a wedding ceremony and tied the knot at a downtown bar, the same place they met more than a decade ago.
Sunday evening the 100th Stampede will end at 11:00pm with what it says will be the largest fireworks display in Canadian history
