It’s coming back to Sparta!! The long awaited Rodeo is returning to Sparta, MI once again after a 13 year absence of the Klein Rodeo. The Klein Rodeo was a Labor Day weekend event for 50 years and once again the new owners hope to restore the excitement of this special time.
Arlene Klein, widow of Ken Klein, the original founder of this Rodeo, will be on hand before the first event takes place. To quote her, “Wild horses couldn’t keep me away.”
Campers started arriving on Wednesday of this week and the camping area will remain open through Monday, September 2nd. The Rodeo will be held on the Old Rodeo grounds located at M-37 & 13 Mile Road in Sparta.
The Rodeo will feature all the classic rodeo events for an audience of at least 5000 people expected with that number going even as high as 10,000 if e-mails and phone calls are any evidence.
