The Calgary Stampede is giving visitors a sneak peek at the new food and drinks available for purchase at the midway in 2017.
There are 40 new additions for 2017, including deep-fried Jello-O and chicken feet on a stick.
“These are foods you won’t forget,” midway operations manager James Radke said in a news release. “They push the envelope of traditional midway food.”
“Our goal is to have you find your new favourite flavours on the Stampede midway.”
