      Rodeo anticipation heightens

      The 46th annual U.P. Championship Rodeo is happening in Iron River next weekend and coordinators are getting excited. The events that bring out thousands of people every year are returning, with even more added.

      A Windsor rodeo run, specialty acts, and many vendors are a few of the things you can expect this year. â??We're also having a 'Tough Enough to Wear Pink' night which is on Saturday night,â?? said coordinator, Shauna Lohrey. â??We have a ball toss where all the proceeds will go to the Iron County Cancer Unit.â??

      â??We have an action-packed weekend, jam packed full of events to come down and enjoy with your family and friends and get out for the weekend,â?? said Ashley Gagnea, another rodeo coordinator.

      There will be a special concert with artist David Lee Murphy, as well as local musicians for some of the entertainment provided. For ticket information and event times, visit the rodeoâ??s website at http://www.upprorodeo.com/ .
