Free rodeo performance Saturday in Park Rapids

When the Headwaters PRCA Rodeo doubled its prize money to celebrate its 40th anniversary in Park Rapids, the number of professional competitors doubled. Randy Jokela, event founder and producer, said entries jumped from 140 last year to more than 300 this year. To accommodate all the action, an overflow performance will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, July 7 at the Jokela ProWest grounds. There will be no admission charge for this special event. Tickets are required when the rodeo concludes Saturday evening. Gates open at 5:30 p.m.
