For the Record: Greeley, Prescott, Oakley City and St. Paul



Cowboy Christmas is the busiest and most-lucrative time of the year in ProRodeo with more than 50 rodeos happening across the U.S. and Canada during Independence Day celebrations. 

With big money on the line, cowboys bring their best to each arena and often set arena records – so when July rolls around, ‘tis the season to set records.  

The following arena records are for the Greeley (Colo.) Stampede, which runs from June 27 through July 3; the World’s Oldest Rodeo in Prescott, Ariz., which runs June 28 through July 4; the Oakley (Utah) Independence Day Rodeo, which runs June 30 through July 4; and the St. Paul (Ore.) Rodeo, which runs June 30 through July 4.
