There is truly no better place to be during the Labour Day long weekend than Cochrane, where every minute is packed with events that are exciting, stimulating and, to be honest, just a little bit odd. There are not many towns where outhouse races take place right down the centre of the main street. The Lions Labour Day Rodeo, a fixture in town every Labour Day weekend since 1968. Come and join us for the weekend of family fun!
