The event will be held June 21 and 22, and will feature everything from saddle bronc and bareback to barrel racing, team roping, calf roping, steer wrestling and bull riding.

To kickoff the rodeo, there will be a street dance at the courthouse on Thursday, around dark, said organizer Stae Sanders.

Dr. Sam from 98.9 will be on hand and Kyle Richburg’s band will play.

On Friday, gates open at 5:30 and the Bo Campbell production starts at 7:30 p.m.

On Saturday night, children have the opportunity to participate in mutton busting, where children can climb on top of a sheep and try to hang on as long as they can. The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. Rodeo starts at 7:30 p.m.

Additionally, there will be pony rides, bouncy houses, concessions and vendors.

Sanders said money raised from the rodeo goes to benefit the 12 volunteer fire departments in Crenshaw County.

“It goes to everyday operations,” he said. “Over the two nights, we normally have around 1,000 people. We do pretty good on ad sales.”

Admission is $10 for adults and $6 for children over 6. Children 6 and under are admitted free.

Advance tickets will save you a few bucks, with adults paying $8 and children $4.

Tickets are available at First Citizens Bank of Highland Home and Luverne, and B&B Drugs.

T-shirts are also available for $12.
