Handicapable Rodeo - A "Handicapable Rodeo" for children and adults who are physically and/or mentally challenged began in 2002.  This special rodeo is coordinated with area schools and is conducted during the day. More than 800 challenged people participated in last year’s event.

Traditionally conducted on the third or fourth Friday of September, this year’s event will be Friday, Sept. 21, 2018. The venue for the event is being changed due to the continued growth in the number of participants and space needed for parking. This year the Handicapable Rodeo will be conducted at the Sulphur River Cowboy Church located at 1935 CR NW 1060. It is off Hwy. 37 just south of the Hagansport community and north of Mount Vernon.

Brisket and other smoked meat sales are planned Friday and Saturday, May 27 and 28 on the Brookshire’s Food Store parking lot.  Funds raised will help produce the event. Cash contributions toward hats, bandanas and food for the event are welcomed.
