The province’s only pro rodeo kicks off south of Winnipeg today with the Manitoba Stampede and Exhibition.
The four-day event in Morris includes the top names in bull riding, bronco-busting, tie down roping, bareback riding and steer wrestling circles.
The exhibition also highlights an agricultural fair, light and heavy horse shoes, kid’s pig scramble and the Youth Stars of Manitoba Talent Competition.
Those looking to indulge their appetite and put that summer diet on the back burner, will also find the always popular treats found along the midway.
On Saturday, country artist Jerry Sereda will perform during the Cabaret show, with opening act Kimberley Dawn. A slew of other performers are scheduled to entertain all weekend until Sunday.
Day passes are $22 for adults and a family pack of four (two adults and two children 7-13) is $65.
