Clermont prepares for annual rodeo

CLERMONT — For more than 60 years here, the Lions Club has hosted a rodeo.

That will continue this year, as the group prepares for the 62nd annual Clermont Rodeo July 6-7.

”This is the second longest continuous running rodeo east of the Mississippi,” said Ken Faulkner with the Lions Club. “We are one behind a rodeo in Kissimmee.”

The rodeo begins 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday in the Lions Club horse arena. Cost for the rodeo is $12 for adults, $8 for children, and free for children younger than 6.

It’s being organized by Young Guns Pro Rodeo, with Alex Sipe in his second year as stock contractor.

There will also be a fish fry 5-8 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Cost for dinner is $8 for adults and $5 for children. The Saturday fish fry will benefit Boy Scout Troop 505, which needs to buy a new trailer for camping equipment.

The event will include a midway and free concerts.

Faulkner said the event has actually been pushed back a week this year for the July 4 weekend. That will accommodate the attendees, workers, and contractors.

He also said that there will be a “Bulls and Belles” rodeo, put on by the same group, in September.

In addition, Faulkner is pleased with the support that the rodeo and fish fry have received.

”The community support has been awesome,” he said. “We have also gotten a lot of support from the town and the people on the board.”

The Clermont Lions Club is at 3201 Tansel Road.
