A rodeo is sure to be a highlight between August 25th and 27th, when the Porquis Agricultural Society Fall Fair celebrates 105 years.
President Jennifer Fry says the professional Rawhide Rodeo brings its show to the fairgrounds for the first time since 2014 with saddle- and bareback bronc riding, barrel racing, pole bending and bull riding.
“We are going to be on August 25th hosting a rodeo education that we’re going to call the Kids’ Rodeo,” says Fry, “where the kids will have the opportunity to meet the cowboys and the cowgirls and see the animals, try their hands at roping and learning what the cowboys and cowgirls get to do on a daily basis in life.”
Advance tickets for the rodeo go on sale soon.
“It’s going to be $25 for adults for the day,” Fry notes, “$10 for children and the category is between six and 12 years old, and five and under is free.” That rises to $30 nd $15 at the gate.
