TULSA, OK -- Tulsa is hosting the Women’s Pro Rodeo Association Finals at the Tulsa Fairgrounds.  Competition begins Wednesday, November 19 and runs through Saturday, November 22.

Hundreds of women from more than 30 states and Canada will be riding and roping throughout the week.

"Friday and Saturday we have performances, we’ll have tie-down calf roping, break-away roping, team roping, and a lot of barrel racing. Anybody that enjoys rodeo or has never seen a rodeo they’ll all enjoy it," says WPRA Director Emogene Fyffe.
