Cinco de Mayo Committee Plans “2014 Liberal Rodeo Fiesta
04/23/2014

“We’re starting a new century in Cinco de Mayo celebrations,” said Travis Combs, chair of the Liberal Cinco de Mayo Committee, “and we wanted to do something different.” While the 11th Annual Cinco de Mayo Community Celebration still includes the Cinco de Mayo Queen competition, the Princess Pageant, and the parade, the main event will be a Little Britches Rodeo at the Seward County Fairgrounds. This year, the event is titled “2014 Liberal Rodeo Fiesta.”

The Cinco de Mayo Committee has become a member of the National Little Britches Rodeo Association. “This year the celebration will involve everyone in the community by hosting a rodeo from 2 to 8 p.m. May 10 at the Seward County Fair Grounds. Contestants from ages of 5 to 18 years old are eligible to join and compete in the rodeo,” he said. Admission to the event will be a non-perishable food item to be donated to the Liberal Food Cupboard.

According to their web site, “The NLBRA offers western minded youth the opportunity to compete in rodeo while developing their self-confidence, sense of integrity, sportsmanship, and their athletic talent.

The events will include steer wrestling, saddle bronc riding, bareback bronc riding, bull riding, tie-down roping, breakaway roping, team roping, ribbon roping, barrel racing, goat tying, goat tail untying, trail course, pole bending and flag racing. The age groups include Little Wranglers (ages 5 to 8), Juniors (ages 9 to 13) and Seniors, (ages 14 to 18). The entry fee per event is $15. Non-members will pay an additional $25 fee to enter the rodeo. Contestants will win prizes and earn points for national competition.

The entry form is available at the Liberal Area Chamber of Commerce office, 4 Rock Island Road, or on the Cinco de Mayo website www.cincodemayoliberal.com.
