When: Fridays, Saturdays. Continues through June 28 2014
Get out of the hot cityscape this weekend and enjoy the laid-back, small-town life our region is fortunate to still have. There’s no shortage of options this summer to see the nitty-gritty action of a professional rodeo, but the Newport Rodeo is a tried-and-true classic. The ProWest-sanctioned event features rodeo riders taking to the ring for barrel racing, bareback riding, team roping, steer wrestling and, of course, bull riding. On Saturday morning, the local community turns out for another rodeo weekend tradition, the Newport Rodeo Parade, kicking off at 11 am.
