Tees Rodeo marks 35th anniversary with lots of rocking and rolling action in sunny weather

Effort great but not enough - Justin Littlejohn tried hard to score enough points during Saturday’s bareback event at Tees rodeo to keep ahead of his competitors only to be bucked off before he could finish the eight seconds on the angry horse.

Dubbed the “biggest little rodeo in Canada,” Tees rodeo marked its 35th anniversary last weekend July 30 through Aug. 1, with a big number of participants coming from all over Alberta.

There was a lot of family fun with sheep riding and goat tying events for kids alongside hard core competition in bull riding and saddle bronc/bareback events.

Many local cowboys and cowgirls competed during the three days of action, including the slack on Friday evening, July 30.
