Wrangling up some rodeo fun!

Get ready for some rodeo fun!

It's been way too long since Talkin’ Tourism has talked about what's happening in Western Martin County, Florida. The Treasure Coast (Indian River, Martin and St. Lucie counties) are blessed with a fabulous coastal environment and history, as well as a "cracker” one.

To our surprise, a great event that has been occurring off and on since the late 1940’s is returning once again, so this week, Radio Man and History Lady are pulling on their boots, saddling up, and heading on over to Indiantown, which will be hosting the Indiantown Rodeo, October 28-29, and bringing cowboys and cowgirls and rodeo fans from across the U.S.  Can you say “Cowboy Tourism”? You betcha Talkin' Tourism can!

Sanctioned by both the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and the Women’s Pro Rodeo Association, this event is in fact a qualifier for bigger rodeos. If your kids ever wanted to see a "real" cowboy, this is one event you simply cannot miss.

Frankly, self-proclaimed beach boy (and Talkin' Tourism host) Gary will have a lot to learn about this form of tourism. Guest Allon Fish, the executive director of the Indiantown Chamber of Commerce, will be in the studio to give listeners all the details about the rodeo. And, while we have Allon for the entire hour, we'll also focus on all the other things happening in the western reaches of Martin County, Florida.

For a whooping good time, check us out on Friday, September 30, at 10:05 a.m. If you're on the Treasure Coast, you can catch the show on WPSL 1590 AM. If you're out of radio range, you can listen to the live web stream at

See you from Indiantown!
