More special events planned for rodeo

 


It’s time to take those cowboy duds out of the closet and get ready for the 59th running of the Colorama Rodeo.

There’s a little bit of everything for young and old at this year’s Pro-West Rodeo.

There’s excitement, some laughs and memorable events. There’s the laughable mutton busting event (picture time); the McMillan Family Trick Riders are back (don’t try this unless you are a seasoned horseman); the Skagit Rein Riders Drill Team, the Whiskey Run, and all the traditional rodeo events.

The mutton busters who ride those wooly sheep are up to 5 years of age and up to 60 pounds. It cost $15 to enter. Rodeo officials said the mutton busting is open for eight kids on Friday night and eight on Saturday.

The rodeo dust will kick up beginning at 6 p.m. Friday and again at 3 p.m. Saturday.

Admission at the gate is $10 for adults, $8 for students and those under 10 are free.

The event is sponsored by the Ridge Riders with a handful of corporate entities also involved.

There will be food available, so come and eat and watch the action. A beer tent will be on hand for refreshments for adults.
