The annual Rodeo Parade makes its way down Main Street in Post Saturday afternoon, August 13 at 3 p.m.
Jody Nix and the Texas Cowboys play for the Rodeo Dance Friday night immediately following the rodeo performance. Saturday night’s band is the Wes Nickson Band. The dance is under the pavilion on the rodeo grounds. Admission is $10 per person.
Cowboys and cowgirls like this rodeo because of its great tradition and prize money. The always- popular Flag Race for 12 and under and Mutton Bustin’ for kids 8 and under take place every night.
