The Montana State High School Rodeo opens at the Gallatin County Fairgrounds on Thursday. And just two days before that rodeo starts, there's an announcement that a big rodeo is moving from Billings to Butte.
The Northern Rodeo Association,or NRA,is a group of cowboys and cowgirls who rodeo for a hobby or kids hoping to earn their PRCA (Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association) card. The group will shift their finals to the Mining City the last weekend in September. The event has been held in February, but contestants have been pushing for a September date.
The NRA Finals had been held in Billings for the last 36 years.
