Salem Stampede Rodeo kicks off at Salem Civic Center


SALEM, Va. (WSET) -- The 51st Salem Stampede Championship Rodeo kicks off Friday night in Salem at the Salem Civic Center.

This year, you can expect to see some of the best bull-riders in the business, mutton busting, and a new specialty act.

"I'm going to be bringing some old wild west skills to the audience and showing them a little bit about the way it used to be with today's spin on it. I'm gonna be spinning some colt .45 peacemakers, I'm gonna be popping some whips and making these ropes do some tricks," said Lindsey Wentworth, a whip and trick artist.

The rodeo kicks off at 7:30 p.m. Friday and will continue throughout the weekend.

Tickets can be purchased at the door or on Ticketmaster
