Prince George, B.C.- Seven scissors made the cut, and in a moment, the BCNE was  officially declared open.

President of the Prince George Agricultural and Historical Association, Alex Huber says the big draw this year is the Great Northern Rockin’ Rodeo which gets underway  on Saturday. “We have 184 participants,  that makes it the second largest amateur rodeo in B.C.”

The BCNE  paid  $30 thousand dollars to ensure  the rodeo would  take place.

The other big event happening on the weekend is the Fire Fighter Games, which  start at 10.




STUPID thing happening there is they close the Kin Centres at 6.. People get off work and pay admission and find out Kin Centres closes at 6.. Good planning on their part,,. Its a rip off

Good luck to the BCNE!! Such a great effort and tons of hard work and planning. I certainly plan on attending. Thank you!!!

Krause looks like a dentist. :)
