The Bulls and Bike Show is a new addition this year and there will be a sneak peak at 3 p.m on Friday.
“The bulls are going to be the stars. This whole show goes to Canadian bucking bull development. The two year old bulls at three o’clock will buck with remote control dummies on. In the evening, we have the three year old classic,” says Mike Sydoruk, the General Manager of the Lloydminster Agricultural Exhibition Association.
He adds, “it’s a BRC sanctioned event and we’ll have some great riding and then for more excitement we’ll have a freestyle motorcycle jump show, that will be jumping along with the bulls.”
As well for the Grandstand, there will be a bar service available once again.
“We started last year with that and people really enjoyed it and we’ll continue,” says Sydoruk.
There will also be a Kid’s Zone and Country Lane featuring events such as:

“This fair is for our whole community and region. It’s for absolutely everyone, all ages, all walks of life. There is something here for absolutely everyone. With over 150 events and activities and performances here, there’s something for everyone,” adds Sydoruk.
