OMAK — There’s no shortage of talent to honor America and Canada at Omak Stampede rodeo performances.

Each year, Stampede has open auditions for people interested in singing anthems during the four rodeo performances.

On Thursday, Aug. 8, Jayden Tonasket will perform the national anthem and LaDaija Austin will perform the Canadian anthem.

The next night, Kristy Hennigar will perform “The Star-Spangled Banner,” and Jody Evans will pay tribute to neighbors to the north with “O Canada.”

Saturday evening, Amy Kraut will perform the national anthem and Tonasket resident Mike Stansbury will perform the Canadian anthem.

For the final rodeo performance Sunday, Aug. 11, Samantha Hinger and Nicole Leese will perform anthems, respectively.
