Sisters businesses are rolling out the red carpet to welcome visitors attending the 72nd Annual Sisters Rodeo this week.  Erin Borla with the Sisters Chamber of Commerce says the rodeo will draw at least 24,000 visitors to the area, and businesses are having special events throughout the town to celebrate.  “Well, everybody loves the kick off of the busy season of course, and rodeo has such a great vibe in town and people are very excited and they are very passionate, and just looking forward to a really great weekend and a really great time. And with the addition of “Extreme Bulls,”  we're excited for that, and then, of course the performances Friday evening, Saturday afternoon, Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon.  And the parade, that goes right through downtown Saturday morning, starting at 9:30, that's all sorts of fun."  Borla says the rodeo is the traditional kickoff to big summer activities and businesses are ready for the onslaught of visitors, and traffic.
