Save, Build, and Change Lives at the Lone Star Rodeo!

This weekend, Carson Park will be full of bucking broncos, clowns, cowboys, cowgirls, and families ready to make memories at the Lone Star Rodeo!

The Lone Star Rodeo Company is staging a rodeo September 6 and 7 as a fundraiser for Merryman House, and 50% of the weekend’s proceeds will help Save, Build, and Change Lives through the crisis center. Everyone who checks out the action will see rodeo professionals ride broncos, race around barrels, rope calves, wrestle steers, ride bulls, and so much more.

The Lone Star Rodeo Company has been hosting rodeo events since 1949 and often partners with nonprofits to raise money for worthwhile causes. This is the first time the company has worked with Merryman House, and Mary Foley, our Executive Director, is excited about the partnership.

“The rodeo will be an event like no other!” she says. “It’s a time to enjoy good food and fun while supporting a great cause. Supporting the mission of Saving, Building and Changing lives has never been easier. Ya’ll come and see us!”

The Nitty Gritty Details

The gates open at 4 p.m., and each night will begin with a concert at 5 p.m. Haleigh Martin will entertain the crowds on Friday, and Carson Beyer will take the stage on Saturday evening to get you ready for rodeo fun. You can enjoy the music at no additional cost.

Then, children’s events begin at 7 p.m. Your boys and girls can sift through hay for prizes in the Gold Rush or participate in a costume contest and shoot for the title of Best Dressed Cowboy or Cowgirl.

While your family enjoys good music or fun contests, you can also find delicious food from one of the many vendors who will be serving guests. This means you can come when the gates open at 4 p.m. and stay throughout the evening.

Rodeo events start at 7:30 p.m., but your family should get to the stands a little early. Seats are first come, first serve. Get your tickets online by visiting http://www.lonestarrodeocompany.com/tickets.html. Attendance costs $15 for adults, $10 for children, and free for kids under three years of age. You’ll also need $3 per vehicle for parking.

We hope to see you in the stands this weekend!
