Wrangling Time in Tuscaloosa, Alabama: The Rodeo Returns
Things are about to crazy once again here in the city of champions, as the rodeo is making it's triumphant return.
Taking place at Ray C. Jenkins Arena, this will be the 13th edition of the rodeo at Sokol Park. However it's not just one night of rodeo fun, as the fun is 2 nights, July 23rd and 24th. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for kids aged between 5-12, and little ones under the age of 4 get into the festivities for free. The gates get opened at 5:30 PM, and the show gets underway at 7:30 PM.
The rodeo features members of the Southeastern Professional Rodeo Association. The Association puts together multiple events and thankfully one has been going on 13 years strong here in Tuscaloosa, specifically Sokol Park.
Admittingly, I've probably only been to one rodeo in my life. It was when I was young, so I don't remember much. Maybe it's time to fix that. After the year that was 2020, and with me being fully vaccinated, maybe I'll head out to see the show.
It's always interesting to see how people are so good at bull riding, the way those things try to fling the rider is often terrifying but exhilarating at the same time.
Also we have to talk about how wrangling is an art itself. Imagine trying to throw a rope at moving animals trying to get it to stop. While you're possibly on a horse at full speed.
Long story short, I probably couldn't do that nor would I want to try, so let's leave that to the pros shall we?
