Contestants and attendees are encouraged to show their support of those whose lives have been touched by this disease by wearing pink at that Rodeo performance.
The Rodeo is the invitational finals for the Pro Rodeo Cowboys Association Great Lakes Circuit. Top cowboys and cowgirls compete for more than $80,000 in prizes and the title of Regional Champion. Contestants earn their way to the finals by competing in a nine-state region, including Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio and Wisconsin. The North American Championship Rodeo is sponsored in part by Ticketexchange by Ticketmaster.
The 36th Annual NAILE is produced by the Commonwealth of Kentucky at the Kentucky Exposition Center, Louisville, Ky., under the direction of the Kentucky State Fair Board.
