Speed is key at the Cloverdale Bed Races, an annual favourite that draws crowds to the historic town centre during Rodeo Week.

When Turkey’s Party Makers edged past Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers to take the first heat May 15, the screams and cheers from the crowd could be heard all the way across Surrey.

Turkey’s managed to snag its fifth Bed Pan trophy in a row in the thrilling finale against an impressively-matched team from The Henry Public House.

Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Arc-Angels – representing the Cloverdale trades campus and made up of welding students and university staff – took home the award for best costume.

Lord Tweedsmuir picked up the Centre of the Universe trophy, awarded to the fastest mixed team – a new event, and a new award, honouring the late Bill Reid, one of Cloverdale’s biggest boosters.

The 37th annual Cloverdale Bed Races followed the annual Decorated Bike Parade. Kid's prizes are awarded by draw.
