The month of July has meant ‘Buck Lake Stampede’ to that community for 78 years. The Buck Lake Stampede, one of the oldest in Alberta, will be held in mid-July and will be a weekend of rodeo, races, horses, western music, parade, cowboy church service, steak supper, pancake breakfasts and camping.

The FCA rodeo action followed by pony chariots and chuckwagons will be held on Saturday and Sunday. The rodeo also includes the comedy of kids in the Wild Pony Race and of course the clown Waylon Marshall. Friday evening slack (slack is a free rodeo performance) with timed event cowboys and cowgirls competing will also be held.

The Buck Lake Stampede Parade featuring Edmonton Sheriff’s Posse will start at 11 a.m. with judging beginning at 10 a.m. at the Buck Lake Recreation Centre. Prizes are offered in many categories including pioneer and horse drawn floats, antique vehicles, commercial floats, decorated horse and rider, children’s decorated bicycles, children’s comical floats and children’s decorated horse and rider.

On Saturday and Sunday mornings the Winfield Minor Hockey Club will be serving up a pancake breakfast and in conjunction with Betlamini Beef, will also be barbequing a great steak supper on Saturday. Enjoy live music by the band Silverback and watch the cattle penning also that evening.

The Cowboy Christian Church service will be held Sunday at 10 a.m.

Come for the weekend and camp or just for the day and enjoy all the activities the Stampede offers.

For more rodeo information and entries call Danny or Dorothy at 780-388-3865 and for parade information call Heather at 780-388-2202. For complete dates and times of the Buck Lake Rodeo, see the advertisement on page five of today’s Rimbey Review.
