Well yeehaw and howdy!? The Beaver Creek Rodeo series concluded last night for the 2009 season.? And what a night it was!? The weather could not have been better, and a thousand + people ?would certainly agree.? Cowboys and cowgirls of all ages turned out in force for the final night.
I must admit, it was my first trip to the Beaver Creek Rodeo (located in Avon behind Chapel Square) and I was duly impressed.? The rodeo itself was captivating and the contestants very skilled.? And the food stands, activities, and active crowd made it that much more entertaining.? My boys (2 and 4) loved watching all the excitement of calf-roping, barrel racing,?and bronco-busting as well as the pony rides, face painting and snow cones.? Life is simple when you're 4, if not a challenge for your folks!
