Boy howdy! The rodeo is almost in town

CUDGEN won't be settling down in the New Year with the fourth annual Cudgen Leagues Club Bull and Bronc Spectacular set to take place on Saturday January 4.

Rodeo organiser Carol Bostock said while the night would involve a diverse range of events, they would all be fast-paced.

"It's solely the faster, more action-packed events," Ms Bostock said.

"We're also going to mix it up with some good comedy, so it'll appeal to everyone from children to their grandparents."

Ms Bostock said the comedy acts would be provided by her performer brother Ian Bostock.

Jayne Henry of ARIA Events and Entertainment said the rodeo had attracted about 3000 people in previous years.

Ms Henry has high hopes the 2014 rodeo will be just as popular.

"A lot of benefits come to the community," Ms Henry said.

"At the end of the day it's a great night out."

Ms Henry said particularly around this time of year, it can be a challenge to find activities for the whole family that don't surpass the budget.

"It's hard to get things that everyone can enjoy, that are also affordable," Ms Henry said.

She said for those looking to have a fancier time out at the rodeo, there is a corporate seating option with spectacular views of the event.

The rodeo will take place at Cudgen Leagues Club on January 4 from 5.30pm.

Children and aged concession: $10.

High school students: $15

Adults: $20.

Family of 4: $50.

VIP corporate seat: $110

VIP corporate table for 10: $1000

Tickets can be purchased at the event, or at cudgenleagues.com.au.
