UPDATE


Hi, it's Ellie here!  I'm the Marketing and Communications Co-ordinator here at Go East of Edmonton, attended this rodeo event.  It was an absolute blast and if you weren't there, you missed out big time! 

People came out in droves to take in the day of rodeo action, combine crunch and the dance with a live music performance by Lonesome Dove.

There were even som furry spectators.

We had endless comedic commentary throughout the rodeo event courtesy of rodeo clown, Denny Halstead, who also rode a motorcycle through a wall of fire!

As I mentioned in our major event listing for Hairy Hill Rodeo, which was actually my first rodeo ever, I'm partial to barrel racing. The Summer Sizzler had a great barrel racing line-up, providing me with many opportunities to grab interesting action shots.

And of course, the remaining rodeo events provided me the same opportunities. There were some close calls in the bull riding competition, bringing to mind that this is actually a dangerous sport to participate in.

Thankfully, EMS were on scene!

To finish up the action-packed day of rodeo fun was the combine crunch event.

Did I already mention that this was a hilarious, super fun event? I hope you were there; if not, make sure you plan to come out next year. You won't be sorry!
