President's message

Rodeo remains as one of the true forms of family entertainment. Unlike other sports, rodeo is family and is family orientated. The heritage of the rodeo is as old as the OLD WEST and began at a ranching level when it was part of the job to ride, break horses, rope cattle and such. Ranch hands would try their abilities against each other eventually evolving into rodeo as we know it today.

Rodeo is such a big part of Williams Lake and the surrounding area that we have a large group of local cowboys and cowgirls that compete every year at our rodeo.

On behalf of myself and the board of directors I would like to welcome everyone to the 25th Annual Williams Lake Indoor Rodeo on April 17, 18, and 19, 2015.

I would also like to thank all of our sponsors and volunteers for their continued support over the last 25 years. Without them our 3-day major event would not happen.

So come join us by “Kick’n Up Dirt” at our 25th Annual Rodeo. Hope to see you all there.

Kelly Walls
President, Williams Lake Indoor Rodeo Association
