There is a "BIG" kids rodeo happening in Darby tomorrow tomorrow evening (August 17) that should be a real kick with bulls, broncs, barrels and bareback!

This NFR-sanctioned Junior Rodeo gets underway at 6:30. Contestants range from ages 4-17. Over 80 kids from all over Montana will be competing, There is excitement in just seeing how hard these kids have worked, let alone the action of competition. Just like the grownups, they actually have to do slack events starting at 4:30 for rough stock (saddle bronc mini-buckers and bulls), since there are about 60 riders.

They are asking just a $2 donation at the gate. Concessions will be available. Specialty acts and fun for the whole family. Sounds like a yee-haw kinda way to get your weekend started. Good luck to all the kids in Darby Friday night!
