Rodeo Queens walk in fashion show

Rodeo Queens are getting pampered before they walk the runway Wednesday night.

Some rodeo queens were getting some pampering Wednesday, getting their hair and makeup done by stylists at the Quintessence Salon and Spa at the shops at the Main Street Square, downtown Rapid City.

The gals were getting ready to be a part of the Rodeo Rapid City ‘Girls in Spurs Ladies Night’ taking place in the Ice Arena.

The queens are a part of the fashion runway show portion of the event.

And they come from surrounding states to represent what being a rodeo queen means to them. They travel together for the majority of the year during their reign.

Sara Weekes, Miss Rodeo Idaho, says, “We get to travel with throughout our year, it really does make it a wonderful year. So getting to know their personalities and getting to travel all over the U.S. promoting not only our wonderful sponsors, the sport we love the most and also our home states.”

On the state level, the Miss Rodeo competitors take a written test, speech portion, interviews and a horsemanship portion – to ultimately earn a miss rodeo title for their state.
