The 135th Guadalupe County Fair, PRCA Rodeo underway
Posted on 10/11/2018 6:46:00 AM.
(Seguin) -- Today is the official kick-off of the 135th Guadalupe County Fair and PRCA Rodeo. Tonight also marks KWED Listener Appreciation Night at the rodeo. Over the last week, listeners have been encouraged to stop by Texas Built Homes to pick up their free rodeo and fair tickets. The free tickets for tonight are being made possible thanks to the business partnership between Texas Built Mobile Homes and Seguin Radio KWED.

Sarah Louque, of the Guadalupe County Fair Association, says she's excited about kicking off another year of fun during tonight's events. She says each free KWED Listener Appreciation ticket will also give folks a chance to win $250 cash.

"We are going to go ahead and start it off with the chamber mixer this year as always. That starts at 5 o'clock. We'll also have a wine garden that opens at 5 o'clock at the same time. This year, we're going to have wine pops. It's the first time for that. I'm excited about that. On Thursday night, it's going to be Tom Teboe and the River City Ramblers. On the cash drawing when you go to the rodeo, you save your rodeo ticket stub that has your entry number on it. When you check into the rodeo, you put your ticket in a box. That box will then come to the dance and if your number is drawn, we are going to verify your number against your rodeo ticket stub and you will win $250," said Louque.

Yaklin Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (CDJR), this year's rodeo sponsor, will also be on site offering folks a chance to win several free prizes at its booth.

Jenny Siltmann, of the fair association, says the carnival, trade fair and other youth activities also get underway tonight. She says there is definitely plenty of fun for kids who have the next two days off from school.

"I see there is no school on Thursday so no excuse for the kids not to come on down on Thursday. They can stay late because there's no school on Friday as well," said Siltmann.

The rodeo pre-show begins at 7 p.m. followed by the PRCA Rodeo at 7:30 p.m. The dance will follow from 9 to 11 p.m.

Gates open today at 5 p.m. Cost is free until 6 p.m. Parking is $1 between 5 and 6 p.m. and $5 after 6 p.m. Proceeds from parking go to benefit the Guadalupe County Relay for Life.

The free rodeo tickets for today can be picked up at Texas Built Mobile Homes located at 6245 IH 10 West near the FM 775 exit.

Tickets will be available until supplies last. The fair begins today and runs through Sunday at the Guadalupe County Fairgrounds. A complete listing of all fair activities is available at
