rodeo is May 19
This yearâ€™s Arden Old-Timerâ€™s Rodeo will return to its usual May date. The 2012 edition of a popular rite of spring will be held Saturday, May 19 at the Arden Old-Timerâ€™s Rodeo Arena. The show will start at 2 p.m.
Admission is by donation.
This yearâ€™s rodeo will include a raffle and the opportunity to win half a beef (first prize), a cord of firewood (second prize) and handmade saddle racks (third place).
Tickets for the drawing the day of the rodeo are $1 apiece.
Concern about an equine virus postponed last springâ€™s rodeo, which made its run in September at the Arden arena.
But the rodeo is back in its usual May date for 2012.
This yearâ€™s version of the popular rodeo for cowboys and cowgirls a little long in the tooth will feature the usual events. Among them: wild cow riding, goat tying, barrel racing, mutton busting, team roping, etc.
Some important dates to remember at the Arden arena in 2012: Kids Day, August 18; the annual Cancer Ride on June 23 to benefit the Relay for Life, and the trail ride in September.
