Cowboys and cowgirls from across the country and Canada will be riding and
roping, and trying to hang on to wild horses and mean bulls. In between the
action, there will be musical entertainment, as well as events for the entire
family. The Benton Area Rodeo Association sponsors the rodeo to boost local
tourism and provide much-needed funding to local charities, so it’s a great way
to have fun and do good at the same time.
some of the food served as much as the competition, and the variety should keep
everyone in the family happy. Look for fresh-cut fries at the Benton Fire
Company’s stand, funnel cakes and corndogs from the Sugarloaf Ambulance
Association, as well as burgers and hot dogs, thick milk shakes, pizza, nachos
the Inn. Guests can take PA route 487 to get there, and enjoy a pleasant drive
through the countryside too!
