The community of Grunthal is gearing up to host the festival of the year when it brings the Hanover Ag Fair and Rodeo on August 16 to 19.
Kicking off Friday with a ribbon cutting and Bullarama, the weekend is jam packed with activities for all ages.
On Saturday the day begins with a pancake breakfast and 4-H shows. At 10AM spectators will be treated to a parade starting at 10AM. Attendees are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to the event as volunteers from the Grunthal and Area Foodbank will be collecting them along the route.
The World Famous Grunthal Chicken Barbecue will take place at noon at the Arena, right after the Parade. Agriculture related activities take place all day along with the Prudential Family Funzone including bouncers, petting zoo, carnival games, and more.
A whole hog barbecue happens at 5:00 at the Puratone Tent on the Grounds, with an amazing evening of entertainment on the Fairway Ford Mainstage starting with Shane Yellowbird and guests Quinton Blair and Luke Reimer.
Fast paced rodeo action is expected to draw crowds when the MRCA/CCA Rodeo takes place Friday at 7PM and on Saturday at 1PM. Ranch rodeo is taking place on Sunday afternoon.
There is live entertainment and tons of childrens activities taking place over the entire weekend.
