Utes can take pride of place at the ute muster with the prize of a beaut ute, there will be carnival rides, a mechanical booking bell, food trucks, themed saloon bars and fireworks.
Cowboy karaoke, a Wild West silent disco, barn dancing and country music beats from bands are also set to keep punters on their feet throughout the night.
Royal Agricultural Society of WA chief executive Robin Sirman said the mister was the first of its kind in the Perth metro area.
“It’s a great, fun WA event that combines the sport of rodeo with music and country-themed entertainment,” he said.
“There have been rodeos in Australia since the 1880s, initially known as Bushman Carnivals.
“These events became a natural extension of the stockman’s skills in capturing animals or wild cattle and traditionally raised funds for local charities.
“These events have been a big part of agricultural shows and regional life.
“Country music tells the stories of the people who live and work on the land and will bring people together to share and celebrate the community spirit of regional WA.”
