The theme this year is "Women of Wyoming" celebrating the important history that women have played in this great state as well as what the future might hold. Please get your entry for the parade, being held on Monday, September 1st at 9:30am, into the MVC so we can get you all lined up. Ribbons will be awarded in each category for 1st and 2nd place as well as an overall Grand Champion. So get your thinking caps on to show us a great float!
The traditional 'Street Dance' is back! Under the town tent in the parking lot between the Elkhorn and Cowboy Bars, will be music and fun activities all weekend long. Justin Beasley and After the Rodeo band will be here on August 31st, Sunday night to get everyone pumped up for the annual Labor Day Rodeo, being held the following day (Monday, Sep. 1st) at the Meeteetse Rodeo Grounds.
We are very excited to be handling the annual Rodeo this year and work has already begun to make it a great Rodeo! If you are interested in becoming a sponsor or volunteer, please contact Tess. There are opportunities still available to be a vendor at either the Rodeo or during the Craft Fair in the old Merc building.
