If it’s raining in St. Albert in May you know it is Rainmaker Rodeo weekend. Rain for the rodeo is a beloved local tradition, akin to sitting in traffic on St. Albert Trail. It’s a tradition that dates back to 1965, the first year the St. Albert Kinsmen held a rodeo. Rodeo 104 was set for June, with the rodeo grounds at the bottom of St. Vital Hill (a.k.a. Mission Hill or Seven Hills today). It rained so much the rodeo was cancelled. The Kinsmen tried again in August. It rained again. But they held the rodeo anyway and a tradition was born. By 1974 the rodeo had been officially named Rainmaker.
