Rodeo Tourist Gift Package

Each year on Thursday, the Corn Palace Stampede Rodeo Committee, with the help of the local sheriff, venture out on to I-90 to find some unsuspecting tourist to present with a gift package!  IMG 2356 tn

Once they decide on a vehicle, they proceed to pull them over, flashing lights and all, to present them with a package containing: 

  1. Key to the City of Mitchell from Mayor Jerry Toomey
  2. Gift Basket from the Chamber of Commerce
  3. Room for the Night at the Hampton Inn of Mitchell
  4. Dinner from The Depot
  5. Crow's Next Seats for Thursday's Rodeo Performance

The Rodeo Committee would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the sponsors over the years who have helped to make this a fun and special weekend for someone visiting our town.
