It's time for the Celebrate Killeen Festival and the 72nd PRCA Rodeo Killeen!

Thanks to Automax Ford and the Andrews Rodeo Company the fun gets underway tonight at the Killeen Rodeo Grounds with Military Appreciation Night (Thursday, May 16th). If you have a valid military I.D. you can enjoy the rodeo for free. Active, guard, reserve and dependants are all encouraged to enjoy free admission.

Friday (May 17th) is City of Killeen Employee Night. Free entry for city employees with a valid I.D. You can also bring 4 cans of food for the Killeen Food Pantry in exchange for the price of a single person admission. Donating 4 cans of non-perishable food in place of a ticket is an offer that stands for all 3 nights of the rodeo.

Saturday (May 18th) is Educators Night. Free entry for Killeen faculty and staff with a valid I.D.

To Win Tickets to the rodeo you will definitely want to download our station app on your phone because each day May 6th through May 14th we will send a new code word to our station app. Enter the code each weekday for even more chances to win!
