The long weekend is right around the corner. On Monday is Victoria Day so why not go to Victoria? Victoria celebrates their holiday with music performances, fireworks and a lot of great attractions for the whole family. On Monday there is a huge parade in Victoria. An event you definitely need to visit. Check out this summary of the highlights from 2011.

If this is not the right for you, we have also another highlight. Do you ever visit the “Cloverdale Rodeo”? NO? Then it’s time!!!

This event is packed with highlights. Look at this poster!

We have just organized all the necessary things for our camping trip. We are well prepared for our adventure of the Month. We look forward to it and still can`t wait. And always remember: There is no bad weather, only bad clothes! 😉

Also in Toronto is all in the character of the Victoria Day. Feel like a firework? We have picked out two options for you:

Cloverdale Rodeo – Yeeehaw!

If anyone told me that I’d be watching grown men ride wild bulls in Vancouver, I wouldn’t have believed them. Little did I know though, that I would soon be having a great time at the annual Cloverdale Rodeo.

Yesterday I drove to Surrey with a friend to watch the second largest community rodeo in Canada. This rodeo attracts competitors and spectators worldwide, with many of the participants hailing from Alberta. This traditional exhibition brings agricultural and horticultural exhibits, including arts and crafts, home baking and canning, needle work, photography, sewing and flori-culture to the already, fun-filled long weekend. The exhibition, along with a wide assortment of family activities, truly makes the Cloverdale Rodeo & Exhibition “much more than just a rodeo”.

The Cloverdale Rodeo is well known for its bull riding, world-class cowboys and enthusiastic rodeo fans, but it’s also famous for its party scene. At the Rodeo, the party starts before noon and doesn’t stop until well after sundown. Known throughout the rodeo world, the Cloverdale Rodeo & Country Fair’s Longhorn Saloon, featured live music from May 20th until yesterday. To open up the festivities,  Canadian Rock Legend 54-40 kicked-off with a great performance.

Yesterday was the finals, with prizes as much as $50,000! For that much money, heck – even I would hop on the back of a bucking horse! Check out some of my pictures below!

Keep checking back for more exciting events like this one happening in your area!

For those of you in Vancouver, don’t forget about the INTERNeX BBQ Kick-off event happening May 29! Also make sure to sign-up for the 2-Day Whistler trip leaving June 19-20! Limited amount of space available!

Have a great long weekend everyone, and I’ll see you at INTERNeX PuB NiGHT at Malone’s Bar and Grill, May 26!
