Pike Co. Rodeo This Weekend


By Sarah Cantey

 More than one hundred cowboys will saddle up at the Pike County rodeo this weekend. 

This is the twenty second consecutive rodeo that's rolled into Pike County.
The Pike County Cattlemen's Association puts on the rodeo. And they say this year's rodeo will have more family fun with a western festival for the kids before the rodeo on Saturday. 
Proceeds from the rodeo benefit youth agriculture programs. 
Exec. Director Pike Co. Cattlemen's Assoc. Ed Whatley said, "Entertainment and the rodeo is great family entertainment. And this is a community effort. All the cities Troy, Brundidge, Goshen, Banks all these areas are really supportive and always have been. County government...it's going to be a fun time."
The rodeo starts tonight at 7. The western festival will start tomorrow at 5 p.m. and then the finals for the rodeo will start at 7 p.m. 
All events are at Cattleman park off highway 231 in between Brundidge and Troy.
