Rodeo highlights fair sports weekend
Sequim Gazette staff
Hold on tight — this is bound to be a bumpy ride.
Each year the annual Clallam County Fair hosts a number of exciting exhibitions and events for the sports enthusiast and this year is no different.
The 4-H Western Games kick things off at 9 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 16.
Saturday sees the fair’s logging show at noon, followed by the Professional Western Rodeo Association at 5 p.m.
The rodeo resumes at noon on Sunday, Aug. 18, and the demolition derby caps the fair sports festivities with a 5 p.m. start that day.
Riding high with the rodeo
For two days the Clallam County Fair is home to riders from the Professional Western Rodeo Association (PRO-WEST).
The PRO-WEST menu has a number of crowd-thriller events including bareback riding, breakaway roping, saddle bronc riding, team roping, bull riding, tie-down roping, steer wrestling and barrel racing.
Do the Derby
Demolition derby fans need to buy an $11 ticket (in addition to regular fair admission fees), sold starting at 9 a.m. outside the Yellow Gate (west side of the fairgrounds) on Sunday, Aug. 18.
The Demo Derby begins at 5 p.m.
For information on derby entries and tickets, call Jessica Little at 477-7653. Find more information on the association’s Facebook page.

The following weekend (Aug. 23-2), the fairgrounds host the Clallam County Junior Rodeo and Sandy Bailey Memorial Fundraiser. Call Tina Van Ausdle at 460-0791.
