This year's Willowdale Pro Rodeo has a new location. It will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 8, at the Brandywine Polo Grounds, 232 Polo Road, Toughkenamon. Tickets are $17 for ages 13 and over, $12 for ages 4 to 12; kids 3 & under are free. Tickets are available through the Unionville Community Fair's website (ucfair.org) or at the gate (opens at 11 a.m. the day of the event).
The Rodeo was formerly held as part of the Fair, at the Willowdale Steeplechase grounds, but it was moved this year because the polo field offers "an outdoor equestrian arena with appropriate footing which will increase safety for our contestants in inclement weather conditions," according to the Fair's website. Proceeds from the Rodeo will still benefit the Fair.
