It has been an extremely long fourteen months of "nothing to do." Those who used to say, "There's nothing to do around here", found out how prophetic that statement was, once the entire country was in the grips of the COVID pandemic, but in the last couple weeks following Governor Edwards' loosening of the restrictions, we have been pleasantly surprised to see a number of events arising from the ashes.

There have been announcements of concerts, the reincarnation of Mudbug Madness, high school graduations, and now, we get word of the Red Bud Stampede this weekend at the Vivian City Arena at 455 North Rives Street in Vivian, Louisiana!

Oh yes, it's a real live rodeo with all the bells and whistles! There will be bucking broncs, bull riding, calf roping and all the events you would expect to see at a Louisiana Rodeo Cowboys Association sanctioned event!

Though it starts at 7:30 pm both Friday and Saturday night, they'll have Mutton Busting for kids 8 and under each night beginning at 6:00 pm and a Calf Scramble each night as well.

And you certainly don't want to miss out on all the antics of world famous rodeo clown, Coty Cooper!

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for kids 10 and under!

For any other information or to enter the rodeo, contact Natie at 318-235-3622
