Pro Rodeo to Showcase Bull Riding, Kids Activities at Madison County Fairgrounds!


Madison County will see numerous cowboys and cowgirls this weekend as Pro Rodeo is bringing their special event to the Fairgrounds Friday and Saturday (Oct. 11 & 12).

WBON-TV spoke with event organizer J.R. Drake, and he told us all about what everyone can expect to see at this family-friendly event. Among the many attractions are bull-riding, cattle roping, and saddle-bronc riding. These events will showcase riders from across the country.

That’s not all though, as J.R. told us that the event will also offer a popular kids activity known as “mutton busting” where children up to 50 pounds can ride sheep. Kids can also get in for free with a free kids ticket which can be picked up at various locations around the county, including the station of WBON.

The gates will open at 6:30 p.m., and the event is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. J.R. tells us that the show will last about two and a half hours and that there will be plenty of good food for patrons of the show.

Note: The free kids tickets are only valid with the purchase of an adult ticket.
