YV Fair & Rodeo

GRANDVIEW — The Pro-West Rodeo kicked off Friday, Aug. 9-10 at 7:30 p.m.

“We had 200 contestants who participated in the rodeo and the grandstands were filled with spectators on both evenings,” Yakima Valley Fair and Rodeo Board of Director member Kirstin Meyer stated.

About 2,000 rodeo enthusiasts watched and cheered on the wranglers during the two-day event. The turbulent weather at times was as wild as the bucking broncos in the arena.
