The weather’s going to be hot but the rodeo action is going to be hotter at the 89th annual Williams Lake Stampede.
Stampede President Fred Thomas said there’s a stacked lineup front to back for this year’s rodeo.
“We’ve got the top professional athletes coming from across North America and they’re going to put on a great show,” Thomas said Thursday of the some 400 contestants expected over the five rodeo performances.
“They are world class cowboys and cowgirls.”
Friday and Monday are family days at the rodeo, where children 12 and under get in free accompanied by a parent.
Saturday at 10 a.m. is the Daybreak Rotary Parade followed by the Stampede Street Party downtown.
There will be entertainment for children before and after the rodeo behind the grandstand, and bands playing nightly at the Let R’ Buck Saloon.
