It’s a four-peat for Turkey’s Party Makers.

The speedy team has raced to victory in the men’s division at the 36th Annual Cloverdale Rodeo Bed Races, cruising past rival The Vault Restaurant in an early heat in the men’s division, and securing a spot in the finals, where the neon green T-shirted team emerged victorious to secure the Bed Pan trophy.

Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary’s girls’ soccer team ran away with the women’s division, claiming the coveted Chamber Pot.

The Stone Pig Prize went to Options Community Services Society, competing in the media division.

Best dressed went to the grass-skirted, bejeweled spectacle-wearing Foxy Fillies, a team made up of staff from Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Cloverdale campus, which also fielded a team of students from the farrier program in this year’s bed races.

A sizable crowd of all ages turned out for the May 16 event in sunny downtown Cloverdale, cheering on the teams and enjoying a demonstration by competitors in the Second Annual World Round-Up Freestyle Skateboard Competition, taking place May 17 to 20 at the Cloverdale Rodeo.

Dozens of children took part in the Decorated Bike Contest prior to the bed races.
