Time to strap on your spurs and dust off your Stetson hat. The Shady Dale Rodeo is a professional level event that will be held this weekend in the community south of Madison about 60 mlles east of Atlanta. The main events on Saturday evening include a full schedule with a parade, barrel races, bronc riding, team roping, and bull riding. Though the event on Saturday begins at 8 PM, we have a great opportunity to shoot the animals, clowns, and athletes starting around 6:30. Plenty of parking, food, vendors, and facilities are available. There is pretty good evening light at the start and the outdoor arena is well lit for a fast lens.
The Shady Dale community features the Rodeo Festival from 11 am to 5 pm with an American Legion Parade starting at 3pm. It includes food and vendors if you wish to get an early start on the evening.
