STAMPEDE DAY FIVE: ARE YOU TOUGH ENOUGH TO WEAR PINK?

June 30, 2014 (GREELEY, CO) Island Grove park opened at 4pm today as thousands of fans, rodeo supporters and Western enthusiasts funneled into the park at the Greeley Stampede.

As the PRCA Pro Rodeo commenced at 7pm the arena filled up with over 5,700 fans decked out  in pink shirts, hats, socks, ribbons and even boots. It was an opportunity for fans to show support Breast Cancer Awareness by being “Tough Enough to Wear Pink”.  Many of the toughest cowboys even show their support by wearing pink. See the attached results list for contestant’s placement, scores and information.

During the pro rodeo the Greeley Stampede sold pink Frisbees for $5.00 each for guests to purchase and toss into a pickup truck in the middle of the arena. Guests who made their Frisbees into the bed of the pickup were entered into a random drawing and one person walked away richer; a whole hot tub richer, courtesy of Premium Leisure. All proceeds went to the Breast Cancer Center at Banner Health to help women who are fighting breast cancer.

In addition to the Rodeo, daily activities continued to be a sure hit with families and individuals alike. Centennial Village and the Kids Korral have numerous activities and performances throughout the days and evenings. The activity’s descriptions, specifics and times can be found online or on the Stampede App.

Coronation for Miss Rodeo Colorado took place yesterday, Sunday June 29th at Greeley West High School as the new Miss Rodeo Colorado was crowned. Rhianna Russell, the current 2014 Miss Rodeo Colorado will be passing her crown and duties off to Marie Kidd.  Kidd will be serving as the “Lady In Waiting” for the next six months before she take the role of 2015 Miss Rodeo Colorado.

This Wednesday Jana Kramer, country artist and star from One Tree Hill, will be taking the 97.9 Free Stage around 10:30pm. Rodeo continues on Tuesday at 7:00 pm.
