July 3rd/4th/Fireworks updates.

Posted June 29, 2020

Patriots, rodeo fans and contestants. We are planning to rodeo Friday and Saturday and have fireworks on the 4th. However, we need your help so that we can continue to offer the great western tradition of rodeo and stand proud for our American independence. Our capacity for spectators is 2,500 and the Incident Management Team is limiting us to 250 people on almost 10 acres at an outside venue. If you are a proud American that thinks we need to have as many people be able to celebrate the USA freedom and all it stands for, please reach out to these people and ask them to open the gates to more freedom loving Americans to rodeo and salute our freedom.

The incident response team said that they will allow it as long as we stop at 250, if we hit 251, they will shut it down and not allow fireworks. Ask each of them to be strong Americans and allow more people in to celebrate UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and western way of life. Personal responsibilty is an key part of Americans.
