For 19 years, the Rancho Mission Viejo Rodeo has drawn the best contestants from around the world to compete in the richest two-day rodeo in the nation. With a purse totaling over $180,000, the top 30 contestants compete in each event for cash prizes and the grand prize. Carrying on the cowboy tradition of “passing the hat,” in support of a neighbor in need, all proceeds from the rodeo benefit local charities.
Bad to the Bone BBQ’s full dinner and spirits menus will also be available for the celebration. More information, including the full menus, are available online at www.badtothebone-bbq.com.
