There’s a new event coming to Barriere on April 5, one that should make area rodeo buffs smile. The True Grit Rodeo is an approved BCRA event, the first of their rodeo season, and will be at the North Thompson Agriplex. This will be the first rodeo to be held in the facility, where two highly successful New Year’s Eve Bullaramas have shown what the facility can handle. The event offers a full slate of rodeo events; bareback, saddle bronc, bull riding, steer riding, steer wrestling, team roping, breakaway roping and barrel racing.
The event starts at 6 p.m. and runs until 9 p.m., then is followed by a cabaret dance inside the new Agriplex banquet hall.
Tickets go on sale later this week, and can be purchased at the North Thompson Star/Journal or Country Feeds in Barriere, or at the Horse Barn in Kamloops.
