Calgary Exhibition and Stampede -  2004
Photos by Corporal Michael Dorosh

As always, the Regimental Pipes and Drums participated in the Stampede Parade - the kickoff to the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth -  on Friday 9 July 2004.

The Regiment once again hosted a public small-arms and platoon weapons display at the Calgary Stampede as part of the annual Armed Forces exhibit.  The display was open all days of the Stampede, from 9 July to 18 July 2004, from 0900 to 2200 hrs.

The Calgary Highlanders were augmented by "deserving soldiers" from Reserve Brigades across Canada, including fellow infantrymen from The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders (Princess Louise's) and The Royal Regina Rifles.  Other regiments represented at the other stands in the Armed Forces exhibit include Regular and Reserve soldiers from Lord Strathcona's Horse (Royal Canadians), Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry, The Ontario Regiment (RCAC), The Princess Louise Fusiliers, 4th Battalion The Royal Canadian Regiment, and various units of the Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery and the Canadian Military Engineers.

Many items of military hardware were on display, including a Leopard tank, LAV III armoured personnel carrier, and various artillery, anti-aircraft and anti-tank weapons.
