Rodeo Starts Tonight
Here’s ways you can support Rodeo this week, as we head toward the Cinch UFR coming to town this weekend…
Take the kids to see the stagecoach on Celebration Plaza this Thursday night. It’s a beautifully restored Butterfield Stagecoach which belongs to a local owner.
Dress Western on Friday. Just wear your western duds to school, work and show your support of rodeo. And stop in at the KSST Studio and let us snap your photo for our website.
Also on Friday, it’s the Handicapable Rodeo, a very popular feature of rodeo week. Another popular feature is the crowning of this year’s Rodeo Queen, Miss UPRA, on Saturday night.
There are three rodeo performances scheduled, Friday and Saturday nights at 7pm and Sunday at 2pm, in the Civic Center arena. Get your tickets at Circle E Western Store and the Civic Center box office, and at the door.
SS Dodge will give away a truck to someone in attendance on Saturday night. Also, anyone who does not have a rodeo ticket can get in free that night starting at 9:30pm when the gates are open to all. The truck giveaway will be done at the end of Saturday’s rodeo performance and festivities.
