Texas Stampede returns to Allen Event Center for third year

November 3, 2012 by  

November will welcome the return of the Tom Thumb Texas Stampede at the Allen Event Center for the third consecutive year. The Professional Cowboys Rodeo Association will also be returning to the event which will draw families and livestock enthusiasts. The event will feature some of the best cowboys and cowgirls taking part in bull riding, bare back riding, steer wrestling, team roping and more.

The run up to the event started in October when cowboys from the Professional Cowboys Rodeo Association ran around 50 Longhorns through the streets up to the Allen Event Center. The Stampede was turned into a family day, with some of the best steaks being served for breakfast. The rodeo will take place at the center November 9 and 10. The commissioner for the PRCA, Karl Stressman welcomed the involvement of the PRCA, stating that professional rodeo is traditional in Texas, providing opportunities for competition and for great entertainment. The event will also attract some of the best athletes in rodeo trying to gain a place in the qualifiers for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, which will take place in Las Vegas.

Two charities will benefit from the events taking place; ManeGait and Camp Jon Marc. The MainGait charity provides therapy for disabled children and adults through the use of horses and Camp Jon Marc provides a fun environment for children with a disability. The event on November 9-10 will undoubtedly be popular, but local brochure printers may also benefit with increased demand for stationery.
