GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - The Grand Island visitor’s center found a pretty unique way to promote the rodeo coming up in February. The office in Downtown brought a bull in to promote that fact that the Grand Island Rodeo is back in Fonner Park.

The Sutton Rodeo Company gave the bull to the office to help promote the event that’s getting ready to kick off in the Heartland Events Center at the end of February.

Brad Mellema with the Grand Island Hall County Convention and Visitors Bureau says they got some stares while bring the bull into the office.

“Well he’s just been here for a few days and we off loaded him off a trailer and it was fun to see people off the street, the coffee house across the street came over literally to take a look at what in the world we were doing its not a normal thing that you might see in a window in downtown Grand Island,” Mellema told Local4 News.

The Grand Island Rodeo was canceled last year due to concerns over COVID-19, but will be back in Fonner Park on Feb. 25 and Feb. 26.
