THE Apple Tree Creek Rodeo is on again for another year and promises to be a spectacular event full of bucking broncs and talented cowboys.
The rodeo is affiliated with the Central Rodeo Cowboys Association (CRCA) and will showcase the very best in pro bulls, broncs, bares and barrels.
This is always a great event for the whole family to get involved in.
Rodeo president Doug Schofield said the event had grown considerably over the last few years and had come a long way since its humble beginnings.
"The Apple Tree Creek Rodeo first began in the 1940s, was revitalised in 1989 and cancelled in 2002 because of funding issues," he said.
"It was then incorporated into the Childers Show four years ago and now stands as its own successful event."
According to Mr Schofield, the event draws spectators and competitors from all over the state, with 1500 people expected to enjoy the rodeo this year.
"This is always a great event for the whole family to get involved in," he said.
"We have a mixture of entertainment throughout the night including rough riding, bulls, horses, barrel races and roping events and plenty of music to keep the atmosphere alive."
Other entertainment on the night will include the judging of Rodeo Queen, Princess, Little Britches and Tiny Tots as well as a jumping castle and plenty of food to keep the whole family satisfied.
"The Apple Tree Creek Rodeo is a very well run event and one of the best rodeos on the circuit and I would like to thank all of our sponsors for their support in making this happen for another year," Mr Schofield said.
"The CRCA knows exactly what they are doing and put on a really great show for everyone."
The Apple Tree Creek Rodeo will be held on Saturday, October 20, at the Apple Tree Creek Rodeo grounds.
Gates open from 1pm and the rodeo main events will begin at 5pm.
