CBC, Calgarians help flood victims with Stampede block party

CBC Calgary is hosting a Back in the Saddle block party on Thursday, a fundraising blitz for victims of the flooding that devastated the city and southern Alberta last month.

The day-long festivities include the annual CBC Co-op Stampede Breakfast, more free food throughout the day, and lots of live music — including a performance by country legend Ian Tyson.
