“The rodeo will feature all main rodeo events both nights with professional cowboys and cowgirls in the arena,” Graham said. “Prior to the rodeo on Saturday, we’ll have the Western Festival for kids that features pop gun shootin’, steer ropin’, cow milkin’ and mutton bustin’ and more.

Each night, for the bravest among rodeo fans, there will be mechanical bull riding and other challenges for cowboys and cowgirls of all ages.

Agricultural displays will be of interest and vendors will have western wear, hats and other western items for sale.

The Cattlemen and Cattlewomen’s kitchen will be open throughout the rodeo with the Cattlemen’s famous “Rodeo burgers” for starters.

“The Pike County Cattlemen are looking forward to a great rodeo and invite everyone to join us for a weekend of family fun,” Graham said.

Tickets for the Pike County Cattlemen’s PCA Rodeo are $12 in advance and $15 at the gate, children 12 and under are admitted free with a paying adult.

Advance tickets are on sale at Troy Bank & Trust Main Branch, Don Walker’s Western Wear, Banks Buy Rite and Piggly Wiggly Brundidge.
