And while you are visiting the Exhibition grounds - why not slide over to the home of the Calgary Flames Hockey Team - the Pengrowth Saddledome. The Pengrowth Saddledome is located within walking distance from the Stampede Mercantile. This is an interesting architectural design, in where the roof line is shaped like a horse saddle, and hence its name the 'Saddledome'.
