January 20th and 21st, Monroe welcomed the PRCA Rodeo to town with Stampede at the Ike.  Crowds gathered at the Ike Hamilton Expo in West Monroe to watch the thrilling bull riders and rodeo clowns.  A special group of contest winners were treated to the Best Seats in the House, courtesy of Choice Brands and Coors Banquet.  They enjoyed the action up close in a special viewing section, as well as a VIP hospitality area hosted by Coors and Hooters.  In the general crowd, children and adults alike marveled at the skill and poise of the professional bull riders, ropers, steer wrestlers and barrel racers.
