Ropin’ and ridin’

Every Saturday night in downtown Pickens, the Ernie Treadway Rodeo Company sponsors a bulls and barrels event. The event provides fun for the whole family and has different events for all cowboys and cowgirls. The little ones take part in sheep riding, while one step higher is calf riding. Events go all the way up to the big and nasty bulls in the open category and barrel racing for the ladies. Admission is $10, with kids younger than 5 admitted for free. For more information, call (864) 608-3807.
