Saddle Club to Host Labor Day Rodeo - Sept 5, 6

Lewisville Area Calendar and Events
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2015/8/29 9:31:07 (78 reads)

Open in new windowNext Saturday and Sunday, September 5 and 6, the Lewisville Saddle Club will host its 51st annual Labor Day rodeo. The event is held in conjunction with the City of Lewisville in the Lewisville Saddle Club Arena, 101 Parkway Dr.

Up to 2,500 fans per night will pack the bleachers to see 300 competitors in events like bronc riding, breakaway roping, mutton bustin’, tie-down calf roping, team roping, barrel racing, and bull riding.

The Lewisville Labor Day Rodeo is sanctioned by the United Professional Rodeo Association (UPRA) (http://urodeo.com). These contestants are competing for cash and buckles, adding to their earnings for the year.

At the end of the year, the UPRA takes to top 15 earners to the
finals, where it awards around a half million dollars in prize money.

In addition to the standard rodeo events, the Labor Day Rodeo brings pageantry with the opening ceremony of the grand entry and flag presentation, and a tribute to the US armed forces.

The stock contractor this year is CWT Rodeo Company of Kopperl, Texas. The announcer is Mack Ginn, and Chase Nolen is the rodeo clown.

Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children. Active duty military personnel are free. Advance tickets will be available at the arena today at a discount of $2 off if purchased from a saddle club member.

Concessions are available during the rodeo with beer and wine by Gilley’s and funnel cakes and other goodies available from Ms. Piggy’s.
