Rodeo coming for Wagon Days

Express Staff Writer

    This year’s Wagon Day’s celebration will have something new—an old-fashioned rodeo complete with bucking bulls and broncs and cowboys chasing after steers.
    In conjunction with Wagon Days, the Intermountain Professional Rodeo Association is bringing its 2012 pro rodeo finals to Hailey Rodeo Park on Saturday, Sept. 1, and Sunday, Sept. 2. Show time each evening is 7 p.m.
    The association’s pro rodeo finals is the final competition of a long 2012 season during which cowboys and cowgirls competed for cash prizes at more than 25 rodeos in Idaho, Wyoming, Utah and Oregon. The top 12 money winners in nine events qualify for the finals and will compete for top honors in Hailey.

    Spectators can expect to see some of the top association performers compete in bareback riding, saddle bronc, stock saddle, breakaway roping, team roping, steer wrestling, tie-down roping, barrel racing and bull riding events.
    Spectators are prohibited from bringing coolers.
    Tickets are $12 for adults and $5 for children under 10. Tickets can be purchased at Atkinsons’ Markets in Ketchum and Hailey, from the Hailey Chamber of Commerce or at the event.
    In addition to the Pro Rodeo Association, the event is being sponsored by the Sawtooth Rangers, West Motors and Project Filter.
    After Saturday’s event, rodeo fans who want more rodeo fun can stop at Mahoney’s Bar & Grill in Bellevue for a live band and “after rodeo gathering.”
