Attendees of the Airdrie Pro Rodeo didn’t get to see a new Queen and Princess as the Rodeo’s royalty program didn’t run this year. The rodeo, held June 27- July 1, has crowned 20 girls to represent Airdrie.

“Unfortunately we just didn’t have enough interest,” said Leanne Grenier, who sits on the Airdrie Pro Rodeo Queen Committee.

However, you can enjoy a “blast from the past”, as this year four royalty alumni returned to the rodeo to fill in, including 2008 Rodeo Princess Ashley Eide, 2011 Princess Rebecca Moore, 2013, Miss Rodeo Airdrie Kelsey Reinboldt-Lynch and 2014 Airdrie Pro Rodeo Princess Mazlie Gehring.

Grenier said all the girls will be available to book events to promote the rodeo, normally a job of the new queen and princess, throughout the year.

Ladies who want to compete next year will be able to register in January.
