Championship rodeo to take place in Minot this weekend
Minot, N.D. (October 7, 2020) – The best of the best for the Dakotas will be in Minot this weekend, to duke it out for the title of Badlands champ.
The annual Badlands Circuit Finals Rodeo will take place at the North Dakota State Fair Center October 9-11, with performances at 7 pm on October 9, 6 pm October 10, and at 1:30 pm on October 11.
More than 100 cowboys and cowgirls, with about a dozen in each of eight events, will compete, said Max Weppler, organizer for the rodeo and a member of the PRCA’s Badlands Circuit committee. “The fans will see the best talent in the Dakotas,” Weppler said.
This part of the country has its share of rodeo talent which will be on exhibit this weekend, Weppler said. “Some of the best saddle bronc riders and barrel racers, and other events, as well, come from the northern plains.”
The rodeo will also include an expo and trade show.
