CROSBY – The local rodeo is on track to deliver a banner year coming out of a time of very little in the way of entertainment, with the Cook-Off, Livestock Auction and Rodeo, and rodeo concerts.
Some board members show increases in early gate sales this year.
This is the 75th year for the Crosby Fair & Rodeo on June 11 and 12. HI–LO PRO RODEO will bring some of the greatest cowboys in the nation inside the Rockin’ C Arena. Both nights will feature mutton bustin’ with local kids riding hard for eight when they pull the gate.
June 10, the Livestock Auction is the time to invest in the local kids. The auction has every year offered some surprises. Many want to know who’s livestock will be judged the best.
The Cook-Off begins this Friday at the Fairgrounds. Bag of Donuts is the featured act and has grown considerably in local acclaim. This eclectic band from New Orleans seem to be able to play any band’s music.
Saturday night after the judging is completed and awards are bestowed, the Philip Griffin Band opens the stage. Muscadine Bloodline is featured later that night.
The Read Southall Band is in concert June 11.
Phineas Reb, featuring Kody Kouba opens Saturday, June 12, and LANCO will play finally for the 75th Crosby Fair & Rodeo this year.
