The Brawley Cattle Call is billed as one of Imperial Valley’s premier attractions and the 2018 edition lived up to expectations, a rodeo official said.
Cattle Call Committee member Carson Kalin said preliminary numbers show six-seven thousand attended the rodeo events this year. Performances were held Nov. 10 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. and Nov. 11 at 1 p.m.
“I think we had an outstanding rodeo event where we sold out and it was standing room only,” Kalin said.
The weather cooperated as well with daytime highs around 80 degrees and light breezes.
While the committee plans the rodeo event, which is sanctioned through the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, community support is vital, Kalin added.
“I would like to thank the sponsors for making this possible and a special thanks to the volunteers that help us each year,” Kalin said.
While many will put their Western boots away for another year, he noted the Cattle Call Committee won’t take much time off and will begin meeting next week to start planning the 2019 rodeo set for Nov. 9-10, 2019.
