Extreme Makeover Seating and Mutton Bustin’

Dear Editor:

The count down has begun. The dates are July 6 and 7. The event? The 36th Annual Isanti Firefighter’s Rodeo.

The preferred seating above the bucking chutes has been totally rebuilt and expanded. If you want to see bucking bulls and horses from a birds-eye view, these are the seats for you. Pricing is $50-$60 and includes food, beverage, and reserved parking. Brand new this year are eight suites built above the timing chute. Each suite can accommodate 10 people and is a good way for you and nine of your friends or family to view the rodeo in Isanti together. Price for each suite is $400 per night, or $700 for both nights and includes admission for 10 people and some beverages. Please call 612-669-2326 for further details.

Mutton Bustin’ for kids begins at 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday night, and is a new event at the Isanti Rodeo. Contestants must be at least five years of age and weigh 55 pounds or less. Pre-registration is required. To register, call 763-464-2508. All contestants will receive a trophy and a life time memory.

Our new updated website www.isantifiredistrict.org has a rodeo section. Visit it for information updates and to order tickets online. Advance tickets are now on sale online and will be available through local businesses soon. Advance adult ticket prices remain at $10, children ages 4-12 are $5, and 3 and under are free. Further information can be obtained by calling the new rodeo “hotline” at 763-464-2508.

You’ve heard about the rest, now come see the best. We’ll help you remember old-time fun, and it’s all right here in Isanti. Proceeds go towards the enhancement of your hometown fire and rescue services. Thank you.
