Residents prepare for Peach Fest rodeo

By Taylor Woods

As June begins, Ruston locals prepare for the Peach Festival and its many events. Considering that, the Ruston Peach Rodeo will also make its appearance in the grand festivities. 

There are plenty of fun-filled activities for adults and children that are planned during the rodeo. 

Lots of bull and bronc riding for the thrill and a calf scramble for the children is on the schedule. There’s also barrel racing and roping involved as well.

As the Peach Rodeo nears, more people get excited to join in and have fun.

“I’ve been to the Peach Festival before but I’ve never heard of the Peach Rodeo,” said Monroe local Lorelei Worley. “I can see my family and me going.”

Worley expressed how she plans to add the Peach Rodeo to her list of events she’ll partake in this year’s Peach Festival. 

The rodeo will be held June 4-5 at the North Louisiana Exhibition Center, 165 Fairgrounds Road. There is an entry fee needed to participate in the activities. Adults can get in for $10 and children are $5.
