Sheriff's Posse Annual Ride to Tri-State Rodeo

On Friday, August 30, members of the Peoria County Sheriff's Possee will begin the annual ride on horseback to Fort Madison, Iowa. They plan to leave the Peoria County Jail at 9 a.m., traveling approximately 140 miles to their destination. The Sheriff's Posse will lead the Grand Entry at the Tri-State Rodeo from September 4 through September 7. Peoria County citizens are invited to gather in the front parking lot of the Peoria County Jail to bid our Posse a safe ride.

The Sheriff's Posse was established in the 1950s. This ride was organized shortly thereafter, and they have been leading the Grand Entry ever since.
