SPRAY - A rodeo, half-marathon run, parade and other events will be on tap May 26-27 in Spray.

The 60th annual Spray Rodeo kicks off with the road race. The 43rd annual Eastern Oregon Half-Marathon starts at 8 a.m. at Service Creek, and the runners follow a 13.2-mile course that ends at the Spray School grounds.

Water will be available at stops along the route.

There also will be buckaroo breakfasts at the school both days, with proceeds benefiting the school athletic programs. The parade will start at 11 a.m., led by 2007 Rodeo Queen Savanna Richardson of Dayville and the grand marshals, the Clarence Warren family.
