GALLERY: 40th-annual Cloverdale bed races, bike parade roll through town centre

Started in 1977 as a publicity stunt to drum up enthusiasm ahead of the Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair, the Cloverdale Bed Races have always been a loud, colourful event.

And how could they not be? It’s not every day that you can see teams of people hurtling someone down 176A Street in a bed frame.

The bed races also featured a demonstration by world-renowned skateboarders who are in town for the World Freestyle Round-up Skateboard Championships at the Cloverdale Fairgrounds this weekend.

Kids then wheeled their best rides up and down the street for the annual Western-themed bike parade before clearing the street for the main event.
