'This is truly amazing': Each rodeo performance to feature parachute

For a 60th anniversary, you need a special opening and this year’s Cattle Call Rodeo will feature the grand-daddy of kickoffs. Old Glory will be parachuted into the rodeo arena by world-renowned parachutist Kent Lane.

For all three rodeo performances, 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Nov. 12 and 1 p.m. Nov. 13, Kent will make his jumps into the arena carrying a massive American flag. Rodeo Committee members promise it will be something to behold.
