Destination Oregon: Volunteers Help Prepare for the Pendleton Round-Up

The 108th Pendleton Round-Up starts in two weeks. The best cowboys and cowgirls in the land will compete in the historic rodeo, which wouldn’t be able to take place if not for the hard work of more than 1,400 volunteers.

For this week’s Destination Oregon, Dave Jones meets some of those volunteers and gets his own hands a little dirty too. Thanks to all the volunteers in Pendleton for everything they do to make the Round-Up possible every year. This year it starts on Wednesday, September 12th.
