Tees hosts 38th annual rodeo

This past weekend the 38th Annual Tees Rodeo was held in Tees.

This past weekend the 38th Annual Tees Rodeo was held in Tees.

While the town might be small, the action at its rodeo grounds was anything but with a full weekend of all kinds of rodeo events. In addition to well-known events like bull riding, team and calf roping, bronc riding and barrel racing for the ladies, less frequently seen events like wild cow milking and wild pony racing were also seen at the Tees Rodeo.

An all-ages rodeo, events for children also took place. Young cowboys and cowgirls showed they have what it takes as they wrangled calves in the calf scramble and held on for a wooly ride in the sheep riding.

A Central Alberta Rodeo Association sanctioned rodeo, the event brought out rodeo participants and fans of all-ages from all over Central Alberta and beyond to Tees for the weekend. Hundreds of participants and fans were out at the rodeo grounds to enjoy the great rodeo entertainment and perfect weather for the event. Free camping was offered to rodeo-goers and the campgrounds were packed all weekend as well.

The fun didn’t stop with the end of the daily rodeo either. Saturday and Sunday nights at the Tees Rodeo featured live entertainment in the beer gardens with Jordan Doell performing Saturday and the Coal Creek Boys wrapping things up on Sunday.

CARA and their main sponsor, Tees Ag Society, wished to thank all of their volunteers, contestants and sponsors for all their help making the rodeo the great success it was. Plans for next year’s rodeo are already underway.
