Lavington marks 70th May Day

It’s one of few May Day celebrations left in western Canada.

And, in support of their 70th annual festivities, Lavington families gathered at the Lavington Elementary School Park to enjoy the annual entertaining offerings.

From a bicycle rodeo to surprise guest and royalty, the 70th annual Lavington May Day had it all.
