Professional & Spectator Sports

It's not surprising Surrey has an appetite for professional and spectator sports: nearly one-third of Surrey's population of 461,000 is under 25 years old.
Sporting excitement pervades this growing city, whether it's at the rodeo, racetrack, or rink.
For more than 60 years, the Cloverdale Rodeo (6050A-176 St) has attracted fans of bareback riding, bull riding, and saddle bronc riding during the Victoria Day long weekend (third weekend in May). It's the fifth-biggest rodeo in North America, and featured four world champions in front of more than 18,200 spectators in 2010.
After cheering on the cowboys and cowgirls, check out the agricultural exhibits and hop on the midway rides at the Country Fair.
