Tickets are now available for the sixth annual Minerva Chamber Rodeo, coming to
Minerva’s Municipal Park on Saturday, July 15, with activities for the whole family.
Children’s activities will begin at 3 p.m., with kids’ activities, and food and
commercial vendors. Kids’ rodeo events, sponsored by Minerva Rotary Club, will
begin in the arena, with stick-horse races and preliminaries for mutton busting, in
which children weighing 50 pounds or less compete to see who can stay on the back
of a sheep the longest. Helmets and vests are provided.
The rodeo, presented by Buckeye Rodeo Company, begins at 7 p.m. In addition to
bull riding, bareback bronc riding, saddle bronc riding, calf roping, team roping,
steer wrestling, barrel racing, and breakaway roping, the mutton busting finals and
the calf scramble for kids will take place.
Following the rodeo, at 9 p.m., the Minerva Firefighter’s Association will sponsor a
free concert by country band Tony Rio and Relentless on the stage. The firefighter’s
association will also provide a beer garden throughout the day.
