Over 15,400 people attended the show on Sunday; overall attendance numbers will be published in the next week after counting vouchers that were redeemed. In addition to being called our Day of Champions, Sunday was also Man Up Crusade day; fans were encouraged to wear purple to generate awareness for domestic violence. The Rodeo’s partner in the Man Up Crusade is the YWCA of Monterey County. They were selling tickets on the midway for a drawing to win a Man Up Crusade buckle and to generate funds for their programs.
The action was streamed live on the Wrangler Network, www.WranglerNetwork.com, and also broadcast via radio nationally on Sirius XM 147 Rural Radio and locally on KION 101.5 FM. Save the dates for the 108th California Rodeo Salinas July 19th through the 22nd.
