Little Royal
Lakeland's Little Royal dates back to the late 1920s when the school's fair was born.

For decades Little Royal was a true fair and exhibition with livestock shows in early days running the gamut from sheep to heavy horses. The 21st century version includes the Western Canadian judging competition and a more traditional cattle show organized by the Stockman's Club.

Little Royal is also about rodeo, a stop on the Canadian Intercollegiate Rodeo Association circuit.
