The Foundation of Yuma Regional Medical Center is proud to host its 39th Annual Tractor Rodeo and Family Fun Day this weekend near Wellton.

The Tractor Rodeo and Family Fun Day takes place January 20-21, with activities running from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days. The location will be the Wellton-Mohawk Irrigation and Drainage District Grounds.

Sponsored by the Foundation of Yuma Regional Medical Center, all proceeds from the Tractor Rodeo and Family Fun Day benefit Foundation programs, including local healthcare scholarships and Tri-Valley Ambulance.

Over the past 15 years alone, the Tractor Rodeo and Family Fun Day has raised more than $500,000.

"The Tractor Rodeo and Family Fun Day continues to provide fun for all ages and attract thousands of people from all over Yuma County," said Wayne Steffey, Executive Director of the Foundation of Yuma Regional Medical Center. "This popular event is coordinated every year by a group of volunteers who are dedicated to the Foundation programs and furthering its mission. The Foundation and everyone served by the Tractor Rodeo are grateful for their continued support."

The Tractor Rodeo and Family Fun Day features antique equipment displays, new equipment shows, vintage car displays, horseback rides, Forgotten Iron Displays, a children's tractor event and much more. Attendees will also be able to enjoy live entertainment, along with visiting the Yuma Regional Medical Center Wellness Clinic and other display booths.

To entertain young attendees, this year's Tractor Rodeo will also include three interactive play exhibits offering up lots of affordable fun: An air tunnel drop zone, inflatable obstacle pirate ship and big plastic balls that kids can climb into for a rolling good time.

On both days of the event, breakfast burritos will be served from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m., with hamburgers and Kammann Sausage served for lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Food pricing will vary.
