Rodeo Cowboys Ride into Hebron
Rodeo cowboys have been riding into Hebron for Harold Brooks' first-ever Redneck Rodeo this weekend.
Brooks is holding the Redneck Rodeo in the same gravel pit that was the venue for the Redneck Olympics last August — an event that provoked the U.S. Olympic Commission, which told Brooks to change the name in the future or face a lawsuit.
Brooks told the Bangor Daily News that the Redneck Rodeo is selling more tickets than he did before the Redneck Olympics. The rodeo is sanctioned by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, the largest and oldest rodeo-sanctioning body.
Brooks expects six to ten bareback riders and eight to ten bull riders.
