Broncs & Blood, Bytes & Code!
For locals, it’s something like attending a Black Diamond football game in the early fall except with horses, bulls and a lot of dirt! Instead of orange and black t-shirts it’s Justin Boots, Stetson cowboy hats and Wranglers and as you might expect, everyone’s there! What, you may ask, are you talking about? The Sallisaw Lion’s Club Rodeo, of course, and if you’re from the Sallisaw area or passing through in early August, it’s one event you’ll want to be sure to attend.
The Rodeo itself is exactly what you’d expect. All three nights are like watching scenes from your favorite Garth Brooks song. The Rodeo kicks off with it’s annual Rodeo parade Thursday night. Riders from all over come to participate in the parade which begins and ends at the Sallisaw Rodeo grounds. The Rodeo features a presentation by The Dandies, and events like mutton bustin’ for the kids and the wild horse race as well as the traditional events. Friday and Saturday night the Rodeo ends with a concert and dance!
This year, the Lion’s Club will be celebrating it’s 75th year in existence. The club took over the rodeo sometime in the 70’s from the Sallisaw Round-Up club and they’ve been hosting it ever since.
With the 75th Anniversary soon approaching, the Lion’s Club contacted Megaphone Promotions Inc. to build them a site. The new site now serves as an online presence where contestants and attendees can see the upcoming rodeo schedule, events, the history of the rodeo and more.
