Rodeo Time In The Valley

IMG_4025Here in Grand Valley, it’s rodeo time!  Yee-haw!

Selling houses north of the city can be lots of fun, especially when you know whats going on in the area. For city people, rodeos are something you see on TV?

Well, today I’m here to let you that Grand Valley has it’s own Rodeo this weekend (Aug 16, 17 & 18) and tickets are still available.

IMG_4034I think there is always a Rodeo Clown to help out and protect the bull riders and there is usually a trick rider sideshow. Some girl with a strong diaphragm will sing the national anthem and some windy local preacher will pray for the safety of the participants over the loudspeaker before the show begins but I could be wrong.  I’m just a realtor..LOL.

Small rodeos like this one usually last a few days. The kids have a great time . Everyone eats hot dogs (except the vegetarians), drink soda pop, and go home with dirt in our eyes and ears.  That’s how you know if you’ve had a good time :).

So, if you around this weekend….Go check out the Rodeo in Grand Valley ;). It’s located at the community centre on hwy 25 (main street) about 3km north of hwy 109.   If your looking to stay the night then you can pitch a tent and stay the weekend.  For more info you can check out their web site.  Click Here
