Grab your boots, cowboy hat, and your cheering voice and get ready to head on down to the Iron County Fairgrounds in Iron River. Next weekend, July 16-17 2021, The UP Pro Rodeo offers a parade, vendors, rodeo queen competition, and the only PRCA Pro Rodeo in the entire state of Michigan, complete with rodeo clowns and specialty entertainment acts. Cowboys and cowgirls compete in bareback riding, saddle bronc riding, bull riding, calf roping, team roping, steer wrestling, and barrel racing. Need to know what that even means? Check out this explanation of rodeo events before you go so you can get an idea of what to watch for!
