Spring is here and that means the Little Britches Parade and Rodeo can't be far away.

Hank Leeferink says it's always a great time and there's plenty to do including the Battle of the Bands.

"We're also going to have the Inclusion [Foothills] Spring Market at the Highwood Centre, we're going to have food trucks on 5th [Avenue], world-renowned food trucks on 5th, we're also this year going to try a little mini Show and Shine with the Calgary Car Club and hopefully some High River car club members, and we're having it on 3rd and 4th [Avenues]."

An added treat is the Mexican Latino cross-cultural dance troupe who'll dance after the Battle of the Bands in George Lane Park.

The parade goes May 20 through downtown High River starting at 10:00 a.m.

The rodeo goes Friday night at 6:00 and Saturday morning at 10:00.
