Event:
Held once a year is the Marrabel Rodeo. Marrabel is just over an hours drive from Elizabeth in Adelaide's northern suburbs and is halfway between the Clare Valley and the Barossa Valley, in the mid north of South Australia.



The 75th Marrabel Rodeo will be held on Sunday 30th of September 2012, with timed events starting at 8:30am and bucking stock action from 10.30am.



Marrabel has hosted the rodeo and bull riding events since 1935 and is ranked in the Top 10 rodeos in Australia. People come for the whole weekend - the rodeo attracts people from all over the country.



I went to the bull riding event 12 months ago, and from a photographers point of view it was worth the drive. It's a day that's full of exciting events.



Carparking is available for a reasonable cost. Expect your car to get dirty and dusty in the open carpark, but hey – a dirty car is all part of the fun!



There are food and drink stalls, amusement rides, art and craft stalls as well as live music and the rodeo main entertainment in the arena. Those who have been before come well prepared with a chair. The chair is placed ringside to 'reserve' their spot. They are then free to move around and catch up with their mates and to enjoy all of the entertainment that's on offer.



Once the main attraction starts, it's excitement plus. The cowboys are introduced to the crowd, the action starts and we all enjoy every minute.
