The International Finals Youth Rodeo makes its annual return to Shawnee, and that means a continuation of the partnership between the event and the Shawnee Public Library. We hope you have been looking forward to it as much as we have!
Youth directors from the rodeo will visit the library at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, July 8, for a special program in which they’ll demonstrate their skills in riding and roping for the library audience. There will be chuckwagon snacks for all who attend, as well as free autographed posters, opportunities for pictures with the rodeo stars and a pass for the Thursday morning rodeo performance, which starts at 9 a.m. at the Heart of Oklahoma Exposition Center.
In fact, the July 9 morning session of the rodeo is a special library event. Anyone showing their library card at the gate at the Expo Center that morning receives free entrance into the morning session of the rodeo, which takes place at 1700 W. Independence St.
