LITTLE RIVER — New rodeo stars will be born during the wild-and-crazy “Dairyland Donkey Basketball Show” at the Little River High School gym at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 22.

It’s basketball played on real-live donkeys and it will be wilder than a rodeo and funnier than a circus. All local players will be riding, so come out and see someone you know try to ride a donkey and play basketball at the same time. It’s a thrill a minute, a spill a minute.  Laugh as you’ve never laughed before at the wild-and-crazy donkey basketball show.

This fun-filled show is sponsored by the Little River Learning Center. All of the proceeds will be for the benefit of the children attending the Little River Learning Center.

Advanced tickets can be purchased at USD 444 District Office, 455 W. Prairie; Little River State Bank, 310 Main St.; Windom Elementary School, 101 E. Olive, Windom; Lyons Celebration Centre, 1145 US 56 Highway, Lyons  or from members of the sponsoring organization at the Little River Learning Center at 315 W. Prairie for $6 per ticket.  Tickets may also be available at the gate for $8 per ticket if there is space available.  

Questions about this event can be directed to Director Becky Sears at 620-897-6263.

A free-will donation potato/dessert bar will be held prior to the show from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Little River School Commons Area.
