“The Rodeo is a GO!”
The beloved Lehi Round-Up Rodeo will be presented in all its glory this year. The Lehi Round-Up Rodeo Committee (Lehi Civic Improvement Association) met Thursday night, March 18, and decided to move forward with the rodeo during its traditional last weekend of June. This year’s rodeo dates are June 24, 25, 26.
“The Rodeo is a go,” said John Lewis, Director of Marketing for the event.
Rodeo officials are confident that spectators will not be required to wear masks if they choose not to. “I really don’t think that we will have to require masks. I hope not,” said Vice-President of the Lehi Round-Up Rodeo Committee, Mike Southwick. With Utah Governor Spencer Cox’s announcement to remove the mask mandate in April, Southwick feels confident that the rodeo will be “maskless.”
Lehi’s rodeo bleachers hold about 6,500 people. “I’m pretty sure we will be at full capacity,” said Southwick. Many rodeo fans purchased tickets for last year’s rodeo, which was canceled. “If people didn’t get a refund, their tickets are still good this year, even if the ticket says ‘2020,’” added Southwick.
Thursday night, June 25, is family night, and tickets for kids aged 11 and under are discounted to $7.00. Ticket prices for adults are $13.00 on Thursday or Friday and $15.00 on Saturday.
Southwick also believes the traditional Lehi parades will happen this year. “The City has not made a final decision, but I think there is a good chance that the parades will happen,” he said.
