Sunday kicks into high gear early with the Valley Fire District Pancake Breakfast. The cost is $5 per plate with pancakes, eggs and sausage available. This will be the last such event in its old firehouse, as the VFD is building a brand new station down the street to service northern Granite County.
2022 will see the addition of a Cowboy Church at the American Legion Gold Star Post 125’s Rodeo Grounds. The service will begin at 9 a.m. and will be hosted by Drummond Community Church.
The action then moves to Front Street where the annual Drummond Rodeo Parade will take place, featuring entrants from around the city and surrounding area. The Mountinettes are also scheduled to make an appearance as well as several candidates running for county and state offices.
The it’s the crown jewel of the day as the 81st Annual Drummond Kiwanis PRCA Rodeo takes center stage in the arena. Kiwanis member and rodeo organizer Butch Friede told the Courier that every event was at max capacity for the rodeo except one, so attendees should get their fill of exciting action.
