This year I have been given the privilege of spending the week of the Miss Rodeo Canada 2016 Pageant with the Queens as their photographer.
I arrived in Edmonton Monday morning after leaving behind one very unhappy little girl, who could not understand why she was not allowed to tag around with mom and the beautiful girls all week!
I met with the acting MRC President, Pauline Briggs, we headed to Chianti’s for lunch. Our meal was amazing and if you are in Edmonton I would encourage you to take a trip down to 82 Ave and try the pasta!
For the week of the pageant the girls spend time at their sponsor hotel, The Chateau Lacombe Hotel for a majority of their pageant events. I would encourage you to support all of the businesses who sponsor the pageant, like the Chateau Lacombe Hotel!
The next stop for the day was a visit to the Stollery Children’s hospital. We are so fortunate to have such a wonderful place for our sick children! The girls all commented on how they were grateful they were invited to spend time visiting with the children.
The last event of the day was the etiquette meal, where the girls were treated to Rodeo Queen Etiquette from the 2014 MRC Nicole Briggs. 2015 MRC Katy Lucas also shared her experiences with the girls. There were many laughs over supper!
