It's now less than one month to go until the 2019 Mount Isa Mines Rodeo bursts out of the chutes.
The Platinum and Gold reserved seating is completely sold out, but plenty of general admission daily tickets or three day rodeo passes are still available of course, plus tickets are available on the gate.
It's also very exciting to announce that this year's this year's Bell & Moir Toyota Rodeo Arena Ball is also sold out, so we are looking forward to a very special night to kick off Rodeo Week.
I would also like to acknowledge our long term sponsors, Bell & Moir Toyota for their longstanding support of this special night which recognises the achievements and hard work of all our Queen Quest entrants - all seven amazing entrants.
It was a great success last year with our smallest cowboys and cowgirls - so we are bringing back the kids entertainment of a mini bouncy kids rodeo.
The attraction is free for kids aged under eight, who will get the chance to compete in mini bouncy events including "bareback bronc riding", "bull riding" and "roping" within a small arena.
Cheer on your little cowboys and cowgirls as they "saddle up" for their ride, complete with music and commentary. The kids will win prizes and have a heap of fun.
Don't forget our Sunday night Live in the Arena Concert tickets with headliner John Farnham, Busby Marou and more can be purchased separately or included in a three day rodeo pass. The Sunday concert tickets cost from $49 (general admission), with seated arena seating and "on the dirt" (in the arena) tickets also available.
If you want to make the most of the night, we have a limited number of VIP "on the dirt" tickets where you will receive a camping chair to use and keep, plus enjoy food and drinks in a special VIP area. Full details of all the concert tickets and bookings are available on www.isarodeo.com.au/tickets
Don't forget our art union tickets are on sale and offer some of the best odds in Australia, with only 2800 tickets sold. Prizes of more than $125,000 worth of Toyota vehicles and a $3,000 travel package are up for grabs this year, thanks to the generous and long-standing sponsors Bell Moir Toyota and Helloworld.
First prize this year is a Toyota Landcruiser Wagon 4.5L GXL worth $95,000, second prize is a Toyota C-HR 1.2L (2WD) worth $30,000 and third prize is a $3,000 Helloworld travel voucher.
Art union tickets are $100 each and are available for the first time via our website, www.isarodeo.com.au/tickets/art-union. The winners will be drawn at Buchanan Park on Sunday, August 11.
We hope you can join us for a very special Isa Rodeo this year as we celebrate the 60 year anniversary rodeo.
