Clements Rodeo offers bronc rides, gold rush for youths
By Holly Hollman
COXEY — Tired of typical summer pastimes like swimming, fishing and sunbathing?
How about spending a night with bucking broncs and raging bulls?
The fifth annual Clements Rodeo is Friday and Saturday.
Cowboys and cowgirls will be stirring up dust as they barrel race, wrestle steers and take spine-snapping rides on broncs and bulls.
Children can get involved by searching for “gold” during the gold rush and scrambling after ribbons tied to calves’ tails. Those who nab a ribbon get a prize.
Lonestar Rodeo Co. is the rodeo producer and stock contractor.
That’s the same company that did the Limestone Sheriff’s Rodeo in May.
The Clements Athletic Association holds its rodeo to
raise money for projects such as new baseball and softball fields and irrigation for the football field.
