The signs are up and the ring has arrived.

From now until October 16, you’ll see movement every day as the Proserpine Lions Rodeo for Suicide Prevention takes shape on the vacant lot on Galbraith Park Drive, says A Mile In Their Shoes president and organiser Jack Lumby.

The rodeo will feature the Central Rodeo Cowboys Association Finals 2015.

“Airlie Beach was chosen as the site for the CRCA Finals through the great work done with the Bullarama,” Mr Lumby said.

The rodeo will feature everything from bull riding to saddle bronc to bareback, steer wrestling, rope and tie, and barrel racing across open, rookie, junior and ladies’ categories.

Proceeds will be spent locally on suicide prevention.

The rodeo will be held on October 16 and 17, with a presentation morning on October 18.

Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for children, and $50 for families (two adults, two children).
