The Clinton May Ball Rodeo weekend is on May 23-24 and the Clinton Ag Association is working hard to make it go smoothly.
The British Columbia Rodeo Association (BCRA) event will also include popular local events – wild cow milking, packhorse race and cowboy foot races.
Barney Bentall, Dustin Bentall, Kendal Carson and guests will be playing at the rodeo dance. Tickets are $20 and are available at the door. Live entertainment will also be provided during the 4H steak dinner.
• May 23: 1 p.m., BCRA Rodeo Clinton Rodeo Grounds; 5 p.m., 4H steak dinner with live entertainment; and 8 p.m., Rodeo Dance featuring Barney Bentall.
• May 24: 9 a.m.,Rodeo slack and pancake breakfast; and 1 p.m., BCRA Rodeo.
The rodeo includes a concession and beverage gardens. A shuttle bus will be provided all weekend. Camping is available at the rodeo grounds for $20 per unit for the weekend, as well as rodeo day passes.
Camping will be restricted in the top parking lot to the front row only this year, as parking is very limited; all other camping will be behind the building.
Volunteers sought to help at the gate, beer gardens, dance, concession and cleanup.
There is an opportunity for a group to fundraise if it’s interested in cleaning up after the dance and rodeo. Information: Katie (250-459-2172) or Jane (250-459-2753).
