A new That Famous Preston Night Rodeo ticket booth, sporting a western storefront theme, will be constructed in the next few weeks on the south end of the rodeo arena adjacent to the Lions hamburger booth.
The city council gave its approval for construction of the booth after listening to Thayne Winward, a member of the local rodeo committee. Winward said the structure will be 12×24-feet and will be placed on a cement pad.
“We talked to the fair board and others who use the rodeo arena on a frequent basis to get ideas of where to place the building,” said Winward. “It won’t be a permanent structure per se. It will be placed on a cement pad in case it needs to be moved.”
City officials have for a number of months discussed a location of the new booth that would be visible, but out of the way and not interfere with soccer and other events held at the city park, adjacent to the rodeo arena.
Winward said the new booth will be placed in front of an existing booth and not intrude far enough onto any grass to cause a problem. The cement pad will not be high enough to warrant any concerns about tripping, said Winward.
