Mar 19, 2018 — Since its getting closer to summer and the county fair, I hope we can get the fair board to cancel the Rodeo event for this year if they have it added, and to not allow it and add a better event that could bring in far more people from even surrounding states to visit, spend money at the fair, and join the event.
So please let them know that events harming animals is way in the past and that with a city/county riddled with crime, drugs, and violence, adding to it by hosting violence to animals events won’t help it’s image. Something with no violence and fun for all is a much wiser way to go this year.
Some suggestions for new events this year
Demolition Derby; I’ve seen many in the derby event asking for the event to be held two nights.
Motocross; instead of having a motocross show, have the event with local and surrounding riders. Charge an entry fee like with the derby and have a prize for 1st & 2nd place.
Bring the Dirty Dash to the fair, it’s like the tough mudder.
The Dirty Dash is a mud run obstacle course where a military boot camp meets your inner five-year-old’s fantasy and subsequently converts boy to man and then man to swine. All you’ll need is a complete lack of shame to wallow in pits of mud and a smile to show through at the end! It’s your enhanced pig wresting event without harming any animals and is muddy fun.
So tell the fair you want them to hold events that don’t involve harming animals and instead provide non violent fun for all ages.
Showing a child they can complete a muddy boot camp type course is far better, and better character building than teaching them violence by harming animals. Same for adults.
If there’s an event you’d like to see held this year instead of the rodeo and so they don’t sneak the pig wrestling events back in, please leave your ideas in the comments and send them to the fair board.
