In longstanding May long tradition, the Luxton Pro Rodeo will come to Langford starting Friday.

Featuring rodeo fare such as saddle and bareback bronc riding, and barrel racing, the 39th annual Luxton pro rodeo runs May 17 to 19 at the Luxton Fair Grounds, 1040 Marwood Ave.

A new featured performer takes the stage this season. Dancing rodeo clown Josh “Slick” Sheppard will be a highlight as he makes a special appearance.

The rodeo will feature covered family seating, along with licensed stands, and opens at 1 p.m. daily.

While admission is required for rodeo events, the main fairgrounds are free to access with vendor booths, blacksmith demonstrations and antique farm equipment among the displays.

West Coast Amusements is set to fill the fairgrounds as well. The midway opens Friday at 3 p.m. with a special (repeated on Monday) on wristbands at $29.

It kicks off again at 1 p.m. from Saturday to Monday.

Parking is by donation at the corner of Sooke and Luxton roads.
