Saturday Crowd Filled the Stands to Salute the Military
Attendees Enjoyed Rodeo Action from Bullfights to Bullrides
The third performance of the 104th California Rodeo Salinas took place under a sunny sky. 11,148 people attended the Salute to Military & Wrangler National Patriot Day to watch a touching tribute to local Veterans who are also Rodeo Volunteers, in four vintage military vehicles during the grand entry. Ticket numbers were slightly down (1.6%) from the Saturday performance in 2013. Highlights included the Special Buckaroos Rodeo presented by Tanimura & Antle and a thrilling bullfight at the end of the show with Cody Webster winning the round. The Riata Ranch Cowboy Girls dazzled spectators with rope and riding tricks. The PRCA competition was fierce in the arena, full results can be found at http://www.carodeo.com/page.aspx?name=eventResults
