"Thanks for a great day, Calgary," Trudeau tweeted, along with a video documenting his day in the prairie province. "Congratulations on another great Stampede!"

Wearing cowboy boots, blue jeans and a checked shirt, the Canadian prime minister kicked off the day by attending a pair of community pancake breakfasts -- a tradition when attending the annual rodeo and festival -- where he held babies, took selfies and served flapjacks, according to ABC News' Canadian partner, CTV News.

"Serving 'em with a great crowd in Marda Loop this morning! And yet I did not get to eat any ... now it's on to Stampede," tweeted Trudeau, along with a photo of himself serving pancakes at one of the breakfasts.

Trudeau's official photographer, Adam Scotti, tweeted photos of the prime minister cradling Justin-Trudeau Adam Bilal, while his parents Afraa and Moe Bilal looked on.
