Walters Roundup Club hosts 53rd annual rodeo

WALTERS, Okla._Put on your cowboy boots and grab your hat, the Walters Roundup Club is hosting its 53rd annual rodeo this weekend.

To kick off the event Thursday night, there will be a parade through town to the rodeo arena near Missouri Avenue and 9th Street. Starting Thursday night, competitors will show off their skills in everything from barrel racing to bull riding. Roundup Club president Tony Teakell says the event is fun for the whole family.

"Well, I think it is one of the best rodeos in the country. We have been well established. We have been here for 53 years and it is not much to get into the gate, and I think people like that," Teakell said.

The rodeo runs Thursday through Saturday night. The club will announce the rodeo queen Friday evening.
