SCUGOG: Since it debuted in 2014, the Extreme Rodeo has become a staple of the entertainment at the Port Perry Fair.
The event is put on by Rawhide Rodeo. Company. Owner, B.J. Prince told The Standard the event was originally planned to only run one year at the fair.
“Every year the event has grown. We had originally planned it to be a highlight event for one year, but now it has become a staple,” he said. “In 2014, there was just bull riding, and it has grown to being a full Ontario sanctioned event now.”
This year’s rodeo will feature such events as: bull riding, bareback bronc riding, team roping, junior steer riding, cowgirl breakaway roping, among others.
Mr. Prince explained this event gives some people, a “unique opportunity to experience rodeo for the first time.”
The Extreme Rodeo will be held on the last day of the fair, Monday, September 4th, at 11:45 a.m. The Port Perry Fair will run, from Saturday, September 2nd until Monday, September 4th. The Port Perry Fairgrounds are located at 15835 Old Simcoe Rd.
