It’s the time of year again where cowboys and cowgirls in Lake Havasu City and from around the Southwest show off their skills and the little ones get to have some fun at the annual Grand Canyon Pro Rodeo Association and Delbert Days Saturday and Sunday.
Each year, Friends of the Fair organize the event. Its goal is to promote equestrian and family activities and events similar to Delbert Days and The Grand Canyon Pro Rodeo, along with team penning and barrel racing.
“It’s our 20th year of Delbert Days Rodeo, so it’s our biggest one yet,” said volunteer Brooks Claas.
The annual Grand Canyon Pro Rodeo Association and Delbert Days will feature many activities for families which include bounce houses, a petting zoo and live music as well.
“This year, we are bringing back the zip line activity, it’s 280 feet long, we will also have a photo booth and a toddler corral this year for the smaller kids,” says Claas.
Face painting, a mechanical giant taco, rock climbing wall, two mechanical bulls, and mutton bustin’ will also be available.
Gates open at 10 a.m., for kid’s free activities. If kids want to participate in mutton bustin’ families will need to show up early for registration. Registration is at 10a.m. and the mutton bustin’ starts at 11 a.m.
“We do encourage families to get here early, if they would like to sign their kids up for sheep riding, because it does fill up fast,” added Claas.
Admission price is $15 dollars per day for ages 16 and up. Kids under 15 admission is free. The event takes place Saturday and Sunday, at SARA Park Rodeo Grounds 7206 Dub Campbell Parkway.
Registration for sheep riding begins at 10a.m., gates open at 10 a.m., for children’s activities. The rodeo begins at 1 p.m. You may purchase tickets online at www.havasurodeo.com.
