Celebrate Juneteenth with NBC 5 and the African American Museum at the 31st Texas Black Invitational Rodeo on Saturday, June 15, at 7:00 p.m. at the State Fair Coliseum in historic Fair Park.
The more than 25-year institution in Dallas, serves as a unique family entertainment outlet and features over 300 African American cowboys and cowgirls competing for $25,000 in prize money. This fast-paced sporting event is also an educationally enlightening experience that provides many of its almost 8,000 viewers with their first glimpse of the historical contribution that African Americans contributed to the settling of the western United States.
The Rodeo begins with the Grand Entry Parade at 7:00 p.m. with a series of spectacular events, including the pony express relay race, steer wrestling, ladies barrel racing and wild bull riding.
