Roundup begins for annual Baytown Special Rodeo

It’s been ten years since the Special Needs Rodeo kicked off in the Baytown area. And once again, the roundup has begun for local youngsters to sign up to participate.
Rodeo Association president J.R. Miller encourages all those interested to get their name on the roster now. “I would urge participants in this annual fun day to register now in order to be guaranteed a Rodeo T-shirt,” Miller said. “There is no charge for this event; to sign up they can just go to the Baytown Special Rodeo website at and complete a registration form.
Volunteers may also register at this site, Miller said.
Parents and siblings of the youngsters are also invited to participate in the day’s activities, which include riding horses provided by Baytown’s Rocking Horse Riders, games and activities, dancing with Elvis, wagon rides, a petting zoo, a hamburger and hot dog lunch and much more.
Those who want to contribute in another way can support the organization at a garage sale, to be held from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Aug. 27 at 7501 Bayway Drive in Baytown.
