Bull riding, calf-roping and other frontier fun will get underway Friday night and run through the weekend at the Ingalls outdoor arena in Norco, where the 35th annual Norco Mounted Posse-Professional Rodeo Cowboys’ Association rodeo will be held.
Festivities will get underway about 5 p.m. with an introduction to this year’s rodeo queens, followed by drill team performances and several hours of ring competition, according to organizers.
The three-night event will boast a series of contests for both professionals and amateurs, including a bareback riding contest, steer-wrestling, barrel racing, mutton-busting and — the highlight — bull riding.
On Saturday, the rodeo will resume at 5 p.m., followed at 9 p.m. by a “Rodeo Dance Party” and barbecue, with musical entertainment provided by country & western artist Daniel Bonte.
On Sunday, an open cowboy church service is scheduled at 10 a.m., and gates open for the final rounds of roping and wrestling at 3 p.m, beginning with a “Challenged Children’s Rodeo” for special needs kids.
Between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m., military recruiters will be on hand for a U.S. Armed Forces salute that includes administering enlistment oaths to incoming soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines, organizers said.
Tickets are $18 for admission Friday, though kids under 3 years old are admitted free, with additional discounts for seniors and active-duty military personnel. Saturday admission is $23, and Sunday admission is $18.
