New Rodeo Grounds

With the decision last night by the Yankton City Commission to enter into an agreement with the Yankton Rodeo Association that will allow the organization to use a parcel of land behind the Yankton Area Chamber of Commerce offices for their annual extreme bull-riding event, the search for a new venue for the event has come to an end.

Yankton Rodeo Association President Doug Hevle says they are grateful for the opportunity to re-locate their rodeo grounds.

The former Yankton rodeo grounds was recently purchased by the 4030 Foundation who plans on building a youth sports complex on the site.
