After about 43 years, the thrills and spills of rodeo action will return to Alexandra in 2018.
The Alexandra Pro Rodeo hits the town on Saturday, January 13 at the Dame Pattie Menzies Centre, the grounds where earlier rodeos were held.
There will be an open bull ride with $3000 prize money plus a buckle for the cowboy who can make the eight-second ride.
The other events include saddle bronc, bareback, team roping, barrel racing, steer wrestling, steer roping and breakaway roping.
There will also be second dividend events plus junior barrel and junior bull ride as well as a local pony ride.
The Tim Farren Band will be playing from 5pm until rodeo action starts at 6pm and will return to play after the rodeo concludes.
Gates open at 4pm on Saturday, January 13, with tickets $25 for adults and $10 for children aged between 13 and 17 years.
Pre-book online at www.alexandrarodeo.com .au/tickets/ by January 12 for a chance to win a $500 fuel voucher. This will entitle you to entry onto the rodeo grounds, and a ticket in the raffle which will be drawn during the night.
Pre-payment also entitles you to use the express gateway entry on the night.
