The Red Mile may be Calgary's most unsought landmark but it exists regardless. Currently it is considered to be 17th Ave SW. It gained it's most renown during The Calgary Flames 2004 season. Many fans after attending a game wearing the Flames colors (red) would descend on the area and have a massive street party.
As part of the partying, some females got into public exposing of their breasts. Naturally this was picked up by media around the world. At the same time a number of websites cropped up related to the red mile and featuring pictures from the partying . We don't recommend searching for these kinds of sites as many of them are suspect.
17th Avenue which is on the southern boundary of the beltline district (beltline as in close to downtown but not quite in downtown, separated by the railtracks) is a trendy area with restaurants, pubs, boutiques, etc.
Will the party happen again on the Red Mile? A lot of it depends on what the Flames do in their current hockey season and of course the weather!.
