MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Ahead of the Great Lakes Rodeo, which starts June 14, the Peter White Public Library hosted the 2018 rodeo royalty. The Queen and her court were on hand to meet and greet and show off a few rodeo tricks.
They also had some rodeo stories and some of the equipment used in rodeo. Part of winning means the reigning Queen and court make appearances around the Upper Peninsula promoting the sport.
"I got into rodeo because my family has always been involved with it we've always had such a family history of doing rodeo, so it really inspired me to become a part of it," said 2018 Great Lakes Rodeo Queen, Grace Lundberg. "There's a lot going on this weekend so hopefully everyone comes out. It's so much fun."
The Great Lakes Rodeo begins Friday, June 14, and runs through Sunday, June 16, at the Marquette County Fairgrounds.
In honor of Father's Day on Sunday, dads get in free when they attend with their family.
