Rodeo action is returning to Azilda June 22.
When you think of dirt and dust and extreme sports, what comes to mind?
Perhaps it’s rodeo, where thundering hooves challenge cowboys and cowgirls. Or maybe it’s dirtbikes, flying across dirt tracks and through the air.
This year, the two extreme sports are colliding at the Greater Sudbury Volunteer Firefighters Assoc. 2013 Stampede Day.
The annual rodeo is back, with more action than ever.
Old favourites like bull riding, goofy rodeo clowns and the Canadian Cowgirls Precision Drill Team will be returning to 434 Montee Pricinpale in Azilda, this time bringing along Jordan Szoke’s freestyle motocross team.
Show day is June 22.
Gates open at 5:30 p.m., and the show gets started at 7 p.m.
On top of witnessing the finest athletes in action, rodeo fans can also feel good knowing their ticket is going to a good cause. All funds raised at the rodeo go to supporting the Greater Sudbury Volunteer Firefighters Association’s charities of choice, which include Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Greater Sudbury, Muscular Dystrophy Canada, The Sudbury Manitoulin Children’s Foundation and Camp Quality.
