NHSRA heads to Lebanon for 2016-2017 rodeos

The Wilson Post

Wilson County Commissioner Gary Keith said that he received a call over the weekend letting him know that the arena at the James E. Ward Agricultural Center in Lebanon had been selected to host 2016 and 2017 National Junior HighFinals Rodeo events.

"I believe will bring a lot of revenue," Keith said, adding that the event will attract on-average 20,000 visitors during a 10-day timespan.

"This is the first time that they are coming east of the Mississippi River," he added. "It is a national rodeo. It is a very big thing."
