Fall Festival rodeo tickets on sale

The dates for the rodeo during Fall Festival are Friday, Sept. 25, and Saturday, Sept. 26, despite what was reported in Friday's edition.

An error was made stating the rodeo was on Sept. 26 and Sept. 27, which are incorrect dates.

The free ticket specials mentioned for the rodeo are good for Friday night only. The free ticket initiative allows a child to get in free with the purchase of an adult ticket, as well as a senior citizen allowed in for free with the purchase of another senior ticket.

Tickets for the rodeo are $10. Gates open at 6 p.m. with the action kicking off each night at 7:30 p.m.

Presale tickets for the rodeo and carnival at the Fall Festival, which takes place at Petrack Park Sept. 24 through Sept. 27, are still available for purchase.

The presale ends Wednesday, Sept. 23, and buying your tickets now will cost $25, saving you $5 per ticket as the price goes up to $30 at the gate once the Fall Festival begins. Log on to www.pahrumpchamber.com for presale ticket sites.
