CALGARY – Tourism officials from Calgary dropped off an unusual calling card while visiting Toronto on Thursday.

They left a giant inflatable white cowboy hat floating in the harbour.

The hat is a symbol often associated with the southern Alberta city, thanks to the Calgary Stampede and their white hat ceremony.

Tourism representatives from Calgary are in Toronto as part of a four-day promotional campaign to entice Torontonians to come for a visit.

The trip includes officials from Calgary Stampede, Travel Alberta, Banff Lake Louise Tourism, Alberta Culinary Tourism Alliance and Heritage Park Historical Village.
