Will Rogers Rodeo to take place July 3-5, benefitting local programs

Will Rogers Range Riders is the oldest continually operating riding club in the U.S. - since 1938.

Benefitting people in need, supporting local programs, promoting western heritage, and providing college scholarships, the 73rd Will Rodgers Range Riders Rodeo is taking place July 3-5.

The rodeo will take place at the Will Rodgers Range Rider complex located at SE Loop 335 and Washington Street in Amarillo. This is a great way to add some fun to your 4th of July holiday weekend, and help the Range Riders raise money for several worthy causes.

The rodeo will start Thursday, July 3, with free Slack events from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The main rodeo event starts nightly at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $12 for adults and $6 for children over five. Kids 5 and under get in free. This is an open rodeo, with $1000 added per event and a $1000 bull bounty each night.

The rodeo dance and concert, featuring the Buster Bledsoe Band, gets underway on Saturday, July 5. Admission is free with a rodeo ticket.

Don't forget the kids! Limited Muttin Bustin' begins nightly at 6 p.m. Riders need to be registered by 5:30 p.m.

The Will Rogers Range Riders Nonprofit Foundation is involved in the community by supporting JDRF, Camp Alphie, Make-a-Wish, 4H, Black Stallion Literacy Program, WRCA, Annual Community Easter Egg Hunt, benefits for people in need, promote western heritage, and provide college scholarships.
