Two weekends of fun, food, riding, music acts
CROSBY – As this paper rolls out to the stands, preparation will have begun to host the 75th Crosby Fair & Rodeo Livestock Auction in the Rodeo pavilion inside the Fairgrounds this evening.
This event generates the most funds for the ultimate goal of the Crosby Fair & Rodeo to provide money to send kids to college. Judging has been ongoing all week, and kids are open for pointers to perfect their livestock display for more awards and opportunities.
The beginning of the local rodeo is the Cook-Off that generally features the Rodeo Parade but the deluge precluded that from taking place. Instead, much like a red-neck Woodstock, locals trooped through mud and braved slick parking lots (leaving an impression there) to attend two lively nights.
Bag Of Donuts played for hours to a near capacity crowd, everywhere was dancing and celebration.
Last Saturday evening the results of the cooking was held inside the Rock N C Arena, results are published herein.
That night Philip Griffin opened with Good Texas Red Dirt Country, and Muscadine Bloodline followed up with more of that genre’ at a lively tempo. Throughout the Fairgrounds an atmosphere of joy to be beyond the pandemic abounded in spite of mud and a sprinkle of more rain.
The Crosby Fair & Rodeo proper is on June 11 and 12. HI–LO PRO RODEO will bring some of the greatest cowboys in the nation inside the Rockin’ C Arena. Both nights will feature mutton bustin’ with local kids riding hard for eight seconds when they pull the gate.
The Read Southall Band is in concert June 11. “Six String Sorrow” an acoustic album made them the talk of Oklahoma “Borrowed Time” made several Top 10 streaming charts.
Phineas Reb, featuring Kody Kouba opens Saturday, June 12 and LANCO will play finally for the 75th Crosby Fair & Rodeo this year. “Hallelujah Nights” brought them up to Hot Country fame.
