The folks in the familiar red shirts, the Spooner Rodeo Committee, gathered in the Spooner Rodeo Arena for a group photo during the annual Spooner Rodeo BBQ celebration on June 15. The new Spooner Rodeo Royalty began their reigns, Sponsors of the Year and Committee Person of the Year were introduced, everybody enjoyed a laid-back time and great food provided by Nick’s Family Restaurant. It was a nice beginning to the rodeo season. The 68th Spooner Rodeo takes place July 7-9.

SPOONER– The very first Spooner Rodeo was described as an “Outstanding Success” on the front page of the Spooner Advocate July 15, 1954.

It must have been a huge success, because there was a second Spooner Heart of the North Rodeo. And now, 68 years later, it is still at full gallop, one of the biggest, most successful professional rodeos in the country.
