The 2018 Ski Hi Stampede was the 78th year for me, although I admit that I don’t remember the first couple of years. This year the concert was very good! The rodeos were great! The parade did a very fine tribute to the Valley fire protection districts but fell short of being a great parade. The carnival was pitiful. The storefront paintings were drab and boring, and all of them had the wrong date on them. Stampede ended on July 29, not July 30.
I enjoy coming home to the Valley for the summer and always look forward to Stampede. I enjoy visiting with family and friends and look forward to many more Stampedes. Good job, Ski Hi Stampede Committee.
