REDDING Calif. - The Redding Rodeo kicked off Wednesday evening with rain in the forecast.

Even though the event went on as scheduled, officials worried about rain affecting ticket sales for night number one.

“It affects the community most,” said Stock Contractor John Growney. “The rain changes people’s attitude towards the rodeo.”

Still, shortly before the gates opened, the line was around the block.

Many fans said that they wouldn’t let the rain get in the way of one of their favorite events.

Growney said the Rodeo itself brings in about $6 million to the Redding community alone through added revenue.

So, with the rain as a factor in sales, officials worried it possibly might be a little slower this year.

However, if Wednesday is any indication spectators will turn up to see the event no matter what.

“Some of the best Rodeos I’ve ever seen were in wet conditions,” Growney said. “So come on down 'cause it’s going to be a lot of fun.”

The Redding Rodeo runs through Saturday night.
