Serve Daily - - NEWS -

The Span­ish Fork Rodeo has be­come a Gold Mem­ber on the Mil­lion Dol­lar Tour of Pro­fes­sional Rodeo, ac­cord­ing to the city’s web­site. Each night is ex­cit­ing and dif­fer­ent, with dif­fer­ent seg­ments in­volv­ing buck­ing bulls and wild horses, bare­back rid­ing, steer wrestling, team rop­ing, sad­dle bronc rid­ing, tie-down rop­ing, women’s bar­rel rac­ing, mut­ton bustin’ and pre-show en­ter­tain­ment.

Ac­cord­ing to the Span­ishFork.org web­site Span­ish Fork Fi­esta Days Rodeo was voted the No. 1 Rodeo by the WPRA and Wilder­ness Cir­cuit. By pro­vid­ing the best stock for cow­boys to com­pete on, Fi­esta Days was awarded the 2016 Po­laris Re­muda Award. To top it all off, our Fi­esta Days Rodeo Com­mit­tee be­came the first Utah rodeo com­mit­tee ever to be in­ducted into the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
