Rodeo tonight, Saturday
by Sarah Fay Campbell
Adult tickets for the Coweta Cattlemen’s Rodeo are $12 each, not $10 as reported in Thursday’s edition of The Newnan Times-Herald.
The rodeo runs tonight and Saturday at the Coweta County Fairgrounds on Pine Road. Tonight is family night, and kids 4 to 12 enter for just $3. On Saturday, children’s tickets will be $6.
In addition to the rodeo competition, visitors will be entertained by Rawhide ‘n Dusty and the James Boys.
Rawhide is Mark Lahmann of Steelville, Missouri. Rawhide is his horse, and Frank and Jesse James are his longhorn steers.
Lahmann does bull whip and rope tricks and horse tricks. He and Dusty perform atop a teeter-totter mounted on the roof of a horse trailer, and the steers also jump from Lahmann’s truck onto the trailer.
The show will be held right after the barrel racing competition, said Robert Allen, president of the Coweta Cattlemen’s Association.
Saturday night, musician Jonathan East will perform before the rodeo begins.
Gates will open at 6 each night and the rodeo begins at 8 p.m. Proceeds benefit the Coweta Cattlemen’s Association, which awards scholarships and funds the beef cook-off event at the annual fall Coweta County Fair and the local 4-H Favorite Foods Contest.
