Members of the Buffalo PRCA Championship Rodeo Committee participated in the third annual Kites on Ice Festival held February 13, 2021. The festival provides a creative way to chase away the winter blues by embracing outdoor activities on frozen Buffalo Lake. Minnesota’s oldest ProRodeo will celebrate its 66th anniversary June 24-26, 2021. Complimentary children’s rodeo tickets were handed out to attendees, Miss Rodeo Minnesota Samantha Sansevere and Miss Rodeo Buffalo Leah Andersen along with committee members answered rodeo questions and showed their roping skills.
Greg McDonald, executive director rodeo said, “We are grateful the Buffalo Chamber promotes our community year round. As the rodeo committee this is our way of giving back, to one of their signature events. Even when it’s -13 degrees out we can bring awareness to the sport of ProRodeo and remind attendees our rodeo will be a whole lot warmer in June.”
Minnesota coined the term Bold North when they hosted the Super Bowl in 2019. Oversized kites flew over the frozen lake drawing attention to the corn hole tournament, dog sled rides, food trucks and hundreds of residents enjoying the time outside.
