Grandstand drawing 2500

3000 seat Grandstand!  (This drawing depicts a 2500 seat grandstand).  The City of Merrill, the new owners of the former Lincoln County Fairgrounds, now known as the Merrill Festival Grounds, have opted to construct a 3000 seat grandstand.  The center sections of the grandstand will have 21″ stadium style seating while the outside 2 sections will be bench seats with backs.  This will greatly improve our spectator comfort and visibility.  Centered in front of the grandstand will be a 250 x 150 ft complete rodeo arena that the Lincoln County Rodeo Association, Inc., is purchasing.  All of this will be in place and ready for use by the 2016 WRPR in June.  Be one of the first to see, and use this new facility.

The Wisconsin River Pro Rodeo and their Ram Rodeo partner, Brickner Park City and the Brickner Family have always held the Armed Services in high regards for all of the sacrifices they have made to keep this country free and strong. So when the decision was made to honor the armed services with the Friday night rodeo performance “Military Appreciation Night”, it was a simple decision to honor our veterans by donating to the Never Forgotten Honor Flight. Bryan Bloch said “We hope this is just the beginning of a tradition at the Wisconsin River Pro Rodeo, and would like to see it continue in the future”. “It was an honor to be able to sponsor the Military Appreciation Night at the Rodeo and send 5 Lincoln County Veterans to Washington D.C. to see their Memorials” said Jim Brickner. “We all agree that next year is a go so put us on your calendar June 12 2015”.

The Wisconsin River Pro Rodeo has been awarded the distinction of being the “BEST MEDIUM SIZE RODEO” in the Great Lakes Circuit of the Professional Rodeo Cowboy’s Association (PRCA) for 2011. Read More >
