Calgary Alberta Temple: Youth present celebration on eve of dedication

Calgary has hosted some big-name events, such as the world-renowned Calgary Stampede, which is noted as “the richest ride in rodeo,” and the 1988 Winter Olympics. However, according to Latter-day Saints here, those events can’t hold a candle to the biggest event to take place in this city at the foot of the Rocky Mountains: the dedication of the Calgary Alberta Temple on Sunday, Oct. 28.

In a massive program held Saturday night, the eve of the dedication of the Church’s 140th temple worldwide, some 1,643 young people, their leaders, five heads of cattle, two horses and one dog put on a show that told the story not only of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Calgary but also much of the history and culture of the city and the Province of Alberta. The event took place in the Stampede Corral in downtown Calgary.
