The inaugural Rodeo New Orleans features a full slate of competitive events, professional rodeo clowns, trick riders and more. Core competitive events include bull riding, bareback riding, tie-down roping, saddle bronc riding, team roping and steer wrestling. Women compete in breakaway roping and barrel racing. There's also bullfighting, a judged event in which competitors have 90 seconds in the ring to challenge a bull. Performing rodeo clowns include the nationally known Lecile Harris and Rudy Burns. The female trick-riding team All American Cowgirl Chicks perform, and country singer Mickey Gilley, of Urban Cowboy fame, performs at 7 p.m. Saturday. Proceeds benefit the New Orleans Police Department's mounted division and Kids and Ponies — Molly's Foundation.
