The small, rural town of Ponoka, Alberta swells during the busy Ponoka Stampede. Because of my reliable work and knowledge of the organization's goals I was hired by the Ponoka Stampede and Exhibition Association to promote its many fun events including the concerts, parade and more. For the 2019 edition of the Stampede I captured Leann Rimes, The Washboard Union, and Lee Brice. Alberta Premier Jason Kenney was the featured Ponoka Stampede Parade Marshall this year. A big highlight was the Rodeo Challenge where children with special needs are given their own modified rodeo events right in the infield. It's a special day for the kids and parents.
I thoroughly enjoy promoting the association's work with quality and captivating images. The images within this gallery are some of my favourite pictures taken during the event.
