Cloverlodge Stampede A Go
Like pretty much everything in 2020 the Cloverlodge Stampede Association had to cancel their event due to COVID, but this year with COVID restrictions lifted the 41st Cloverlodge Stampede is a go, and is co-sponsored by the Viking Ag Society.
The Stampede will be located at the Cloverlodge Stampede grounds on the northeast corner of the Town of Viking and will run on July 24 and 25. The event will feature all their past year events such as, bareback and saddle broncs, tie-down roping, junior steer riding, steer wrestling, junior bull riding as well as ladies, junior and pee wee barrel racing, junior horse riding and bull riding, and the all-time favourite with many stampede goers a beer garden will be available as well as hot food and non-serviced camping spaces.
The event is family-friendly and will offer children activities including a bouncy castle for both days, a stick horse race, and a bicycle foot race.
The stampede performance will begin at 4 p.m. on Saturday and fireworks will be blasted off at dusk. On Sunday the day will be kicked off with a pancake breakfast at 8 a.m. and a cowboy church service at 11 a.m. Stampede events will begin at 1 p.m.
“We are so extremely grateful to be able to have our Stampede this year! We have installed new chutes and we are excited to show them off,” commented Muriel Hill, Secretary of the Cloverlodge Stampede Association.
