Green River Rodeo Grounds Unveils New Signs In Time for Overland Stage Stampede

The new signs were erected last week and just in the time for the 34th annual Overland Stage Stampede Rodeo this weekend.

GREEN RIVER — Just in time for the 2022 Overland Stage Stampede Rodeo, a brand new sign will welcome fans when they enter the Green River arena tonight.

Thanks to donations and many volunteers the Green River rodeo grounds placed two new signs last week celebrating the annual rodeo.

Committee Vice President Kelly Harmon said the idea for signage began in 2019. But because of COVID and other issues, the project took 3 years to complete. Harmon says the Green River High School welding class of 2021 built one of the signs, while Clint Eddy from Sweetwater Metal Works completed the second sign.

Harmon noted that the high school sign is placed on the north side of the complex, while the Eddy sign sits on top of the arches that were built in 2019. Harmon thanked several businesses that help to complete the project including: Bobcat of Rock Springs; Pacific Steel; Legend Services; and Rocky Mountain Power Sports.

He also said several committee members, Kyle and Mandy Alred, Kelly and Laurie Harmon, Kolby Hester, Danny and Carrie Collins, were all a big help.

The 34th annual Overland Stage Stampede Rodeo will take place tonight and tomorrow night with gates opening at 6 p.m. both nights.
