There will be reserved seating in the west grandstand.
Rodeo organizers say one of the frustrations they’ve heard from the crowd was having to get there early to save seats, and once they get their seat, the inability to get up and leave without fear of losing it.
“The nice thing about that this year is that nobody will be fighting over the seats over there. You can come early, enjoy the venders on site and know that when you go back, your seat will still be there,” said Frank Brocci, director of the Eugene Pro Rodeo.
In addition to reserved seating, for $2 more you can get a seat with a seat back.
Thursday night is Family Night at the 23rd annual Eugene Pro Rodeo. Two adult and two children’s tickets are $36.
Gates open at 4 p.m. Motorcycle jumping begins at 6 p.m. The rodeo gets under way at 7:30 p.m. with fireworks at 9:30 p.m.
