The 2nd annual Rodeo Kickoff, Cookoff and Barn Party, an all-day festival to raise funds for the Polk County Youth Rodeo Association located at 101 Fair St., will be held from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday at the Barney Wiggins Memorial Fairgrounds Arena. An arena style concert is slated for 5 p.m.
“We raised a little over $5,000 last year. We would love to raise more this year. It would mean a lot to the youth,” Tim Martin, event organizer, said.
Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for children 11-17 and free for children 10 and under. There will be a variety of activities for the children, entertainment all day and over 50 vendors. To obtain a vendor slot, contact Patty at 281-216-3099.
The barbecue cookoff will be sanctioned by the Lone Star Barbecue Society and there will be a 60% payout based on the number of entries. For entry forms, contact Tim at 936-425-0474.
All proceeds will go to the Polk County Youth Rodeo Association. This year’s Polk County Youth Rodeo is slated for July 6-9.
