Here, Bully, Bully! Rockin ‘RC Rodeo Loose Busts
It has been reserved for standing at the Rockin ‘RC Rodeo at Ravalli County Fair in Hamilton. In fact, A LOT of ORS is taking place as the grandstands completely filled up for the Ranch Rodeo Team Competition on Wednesday night and the Bull-A-Rama and Bronc Riding night on Thursday. Even, little kids entered the bull night, with sheep ‘busting’ on horseback and little horses buckin ‘.
The Hamilton Fair is themed “Blue Jeans and Rodeo Scenes”, which describes the action of the main area quite well. One of the big NRA sanctioned rodeos starts Friday night and continues through Saturday for the finals. They are competitors and animals classified at national level. The action is uninterrupted.
Of course, there is always a bit of pageantry. The young girls of Rockin ‘RC Royalty will be crowned Friday night at 6:15 p.m. with the Bitterroot Mountettes drill team putting their horses into the precise routine at 6:45 p.m. Most rodeos start at 7:00 p.m. each night, but the Rockin ‘RC Barrel Racing Finals are on Saturday at 5:00 p.m. One of the perks of the Ravalli County Fair is that your fairground entrance fee includes all of the rodeo action – at no additional cost.
Of course, the usual things that bring you back to the fair every year are here. We have the Fair Food in the food court and a ton of thrill rides in the carnival area. And don’t forget the exhibitions. Many talented people have entered their creations in all kinds of categories. There are a lot of blue ribbons at the Ravalli County Fair.
