It’s “Rodeo Week” in Ponca City.   Several exciting activities will be in the Ponca City area including a parade downtown along Grand Avenue on Saturday morning.  The parade which starts at 10 a.m. is immediately followed by the annual Kids Rodeo held in front of the Ponca City Library on Grand Avenue. The Kids Rodeo has become an exciting tradition after the parade offering kids the opportunity to meet queens, visit rodeo clowns, and get up close to rodeo affiliated livestock. Horse rides, goat tail tying, and stick horse barrel races are just a sample of the fun activities slated for the kids.

The Ponca City Rodeo Foundation, its 16 board members, and numerous supporters, invites everyone to attend this year’s rodeo. “Family Night” is Thursday with adults just $12 in advance, $15 at the gate, & kids ages 12 & under FREE.
