The 72nd annual Ponoka Stampede kicked off on June 25 with 3,753 people watching the professional rodeo action. It was a beautiful evening with only a few showers for the first night of the largest professional rodeo in Canada.

The Ponoka News hosted the first pancake breakfast with more than 1,000 people enjoying a great breakfast on Chipman Avenue. The event raised $1,500 for the Kidney Foundation of Canada and was a fun morning for all in attendance. The next pancake breakfast will be on June 28 at the Ponoka Town Centre starting at 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Also on June 30 there will be a pancake breakfast at the Stampede Grandstand hosted by the Alberta Cattlemen’s Association and on July 1 pancakes will be served at Kinetic Process Systems.
