THE Mer­ri­jig Rodeo is the high­light of the High Coun­try calendar

Dust off your hats, shine up those boots and get that belt buckle ready – the Mer­ri­jig Rodeo is nearly here, and it is promis­ing to be the best one yet.

The Mer­ri­jig Rodeo is part of the APRA tri-se­ries cham­pi­onship that in­cor­po­rates the Kyabram, Mans­field and Chiltern rodeos across the Labour Day long week­end, and it doesn’t mat­ter if you choose to visit one or all three - a great time is guar­an­teed at each.

Run­ning on Satur­day night, March 12, the Mer­ri­jig Rodeo gates will open at 3pm with the main events kick­ing off at 6.30pm.

There is some­thing for every­one, with kids ac­tiv­i­ties, sideshow al­ley, li­censed bar and food stalls, and that’s just on the side lines.

In the main arena there will be barrel races, steer wrestling, bare­back bronc rid­ers, clowns and of course, the main event bull ride and lo­cals steer ride.

En­try is just $30 per adult, with all chil­dren un­der 18 free but they must be ac­com­pa­nied by an adult.

BAR­RELS AND BRONCS: The Mer­ri­jig Rodeo is on again this Labour Day long week­end, and there is some­thing for the whole fam­ily on of­fer, from bull rides to barrel races, car­ni­val rides to calf rop­ing.
