Cushing Oklahoma host two BIG events in early July. First is Cushing's July 4th BLOWOUT. Held on Monday July 4th starting with a parade on Broadway, and finishing with LIVE entertainment and Firewors set to patriotic music in Memorial Park. The following Friday starts Cushing's PRCA Community Rodeo, at the rodeo grounds on North Linwood. You will want to take part in both of these events. Tons of family entertainment at both shows. The 4th of July BLOWOUT is FREE to the public. LIVE music all day, culminating with a street dance and performances from headliner Joe Uveges and the Red Grass String Band. A car show, kids games and hot dog and watermelon eating contest with prizes for the winners. Rodeo tickets will also be on sale next to the event information booth. A great time to pick those up, and be set for your summer weekend on the 8th and 9th of July.
The PRCA sanctioned rodeo attracts great live stock and competition from around the area rodeo circuit. Bare back riding, steer roping, barrel racing and of course bull riding are just a few of the highlighted events at the rodeo again this year. Enjoy Allan Dessel as the rodeo clown, performing the "Evolution of Dance" during the halftime break, along with the "One Armed Bandit", another GREAT show to see at the rodeo. All of this brought to you through the perspective of Justin McKee, well known rodeo announcer in the PRCA. Here is Justin giving you his take on the activities for this years rodeo.
Pick up your rodeo tickets early, at Memorial Park Monday July 4th and avoid the line at the gate. Cushing has prepared some great summer entertainment this year, Be sure and get the family out to experience all Cushing has to offer this July.
