Munro is excited for next year and says, “it was so nice to see all the families out there again and see that many kids having fun, seeing smiles on faces again, and giving folks that entertainment outlet”.  

The event also gave the rodeo the chance to crown new royalty. Due to COVID, they haven’t been able to crown new royalty since 2019.  

The new Rodeo Royalty includes the Queen, Kelcey Moore and the new Princess, Hannah Braun.
