After 129 years, the World’s Oldest Continuous Rodeo finally has its own song.
Katy Rovetto and the Payson Community Kids will present the song just before the 1 p.m. performance Sunday, Aug. 18 at the Payson Event Center.
The 10 members of the Payson Community Kids family have been practicing the song ever since Rovetto wrote it in July. They’ve also worked out a dance number sure to delight audiences.
The singers range in age from 5 to 11. Rovetto provided most of the costumes, but the Payson First Assembly of God Church provided the costume for the youngster “playing” the rodeo clown.
Rovetto and the children auditioned the song for Payson Pro Rodeo Committee Vice President John Landino Wednesday afternoon.
Landino and the committee are giving the children and their parents free admission to the Sunday performance of the rodeo, plus special seating, a free hot dog and soda for each.
The Sunday rodeo is the Family Day performance and will feature a number of other specials.
