Bridge Lake Stampede coming up

65th Bridge Lake Stampede set to happen on June 28

Hundreds of visitors and competitors are expected at the 65th Bridge Lake Stampede at the Bridge Lake Rodeo Grounds on June 28.

Bridge Lake Community Club president Jamie Law says organizing for the event is going well.

“We have a lot of longtime volunteers, people who have been doing this for 15 to 20 years. It’s pretty easy to get going every year.”

The day will feature bull riding, saddle bronc, bare back, team roping, barrel racing, tie down roping, a tug-of-war event, and a greased pig.

Admission is $15 for adults, $10 for seniors, $5 for children aged six to 12, and children five years and under are admitted free.

A pancake breakfast will be available from 8 a.m., slack (extra events) starts at 9 a.m., and the main events start at noon.

The rodeo contractor this year is DnB Rodeo Stock.

There’s a real family atmosphere at the Bridge Lake Rodeo Grounds, where the event takes place.

The Bridge Lake Stampede Grounds are located on the Bridge Lake Business Route just off Highway 24, and signs will be posted.
