Hello, I wanted to let you know about the upcoming Trail Blazers Rodeo event this week in Monticello.
I am Riley Brandenburg the 2023 Piatt County Trail Blazers Rodeo Queen. I was recently crowned in April. I am from Cerro Gordo, IL and the daughter of Trent and Jenny Brandenburg. I have recently graduated from Illinois College majoring in Political Science with a minor in Pre Law. In August, I will attending Law School at the University of Arkansas in Little Rock. I have been barrel racing horses since I was eight years old.
The Rodeo starts June 22nd – 24th. Gates open at 5pm and the show starts at 7pm.
We also have the parade on Saturday in Monticello at 10am anyone is welcome to join in the parade. Line up is on Kratz road.
Immediately after the parade we have a Kids and Clown event at Rick Ridings Car Dealership in Monticello. All kids are welcome to come out and have fun with lots of activities, food, a bounce house, mechanical bull and I will be there signing autographs.
We have a DJ on Friday night after the Rodeo and on Saturday night we have Nashville Recording Artist Tanner Fussell recently seen on the popular TV show The Voice.
Tickets can be purchased by stopping by the clubhouse in Monticello, our facebook page, or they will also be available at the Gate.
