BRANSON, MO – Experience Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library come to life at the “Whoadeo” on, Saturday, October 5th from 10:00AM to 1PM at Dixie Stampede in Branson. The free event is designed to celebrate the joy of reading among families, while children enjoy riding stick horses “rodeo style” in the Dixie Stampede performance arena.

“Whoadeo” will showcase 5 events including: Barrel Racing, Pole Bending, Trail or Obstacle Course, Bucking Horse and Jumping. Children and adults will compete on a “stick horse” as they race around barrels, jump over obstacles or manage to not get “bucked” off their horse. Prizes will be awarded for top times and creative “bucking”. Dixie Stampede will provide stick horses for “Whoadeo” participants or children may bring their own.

“My Imagination Library “Whoadeo” is a fun event for all ages,” Dolly said. “There’s nothing better for a child’s mind than reading, so we hope that with each book, the child will dream more, learn more, care more and be more.”

Also featured during the “Whoadeo” at Dixie Stampede will be kids’ games, face painting, animal exhibitions, as well as giveaways from companies and public agencies that serve families.

All proceeds from Dixie Stampede Dinner & Show performance that evening, Saturday, October 5th will be donated to Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.
