Merritt set to host Canadian National High School Rodeo Finals.
Director Fritz Mair confirms the Nicola Valley Pro Rodeo Association has won the right to host the finals in 2018.
"Merritt has a lot to offer, and I believe will do great. We're still working on the date. Because of the Rockin' River Music Fest, we are looking at the weekend before that. But that still needs to be confirmed."
The event is expected to bring around 300 competitors to the city.
To his knowledge, Mair says Williams Lake is the only other city to ever host the event in BC.
