CROSBY – It’s YeeHaw time, as our Western roots show at the Annual Crosby Fair and Rodeo. Plans are underway for a full schedule of events, except for the dance. Top entertainers will be performing on 4 different nights, as well as the C.P.R.A. Championship Rodeo on 2 nights. A BBQ cook-off and a parade are also on the schedule. Student exhibitors will have their animals judged on June 7 and 8, and then the livestock auction will follow on June 9. Don’t miss the buyer’s dinner that afternoon.
The kick-off event will be the Cowpoke Pageant, to be held at the Fairgrounds pavilion on Saturday, May 7 starting at 10am. Contestants will be in three age categories: 0- 2, 3-5, and 6-8. Categories will be All American Cowboy, All American Cowgirl, Rodeo Clown (boys), and Rodeo Dress (girls). Cowpoke director Rachel Hicks reports that a large field of over 40 kids, in 55 categories, have signed up for the event.
The fun and festivities really get underway in June, when the BBQ Cookoff takes place Friday, June 3 starting at 5pm. That same evening, the popular group Bag of Donuts will give a concert at 7pm in the Rock’n C Arena.
