Fort St. John Rodeo saddles up for the weekend

The event will see over 272 athletes competing in all different kinds of rodeo events.

Rodeo organizer Jodie Surerus has high hopes for the event and expects lots of fun rain or shine.

“I think it will be a really good show. I’m hoping the rain will hold off on Friday, but we will be ready for a monsoon,” said Surerus. “We have great events and donations are amazing this year.”

This year’s rodeo will feature a “Dance in the Dirt”, which will have live entertainment as well as food and drinks. Surerus mentioned she is very excited that they are able to put on a dance because some communities this size don’t have the resources.
