Is there a better way to celebrate the start of summer then enjoying an old fashioned Rodeo? I would say no. Here is a guide on how to best enjoy the Strawberry day festivities.
1. Eat Strawberries and Cream
Your diet will forgive you just this once. I would suggest waiting for a few minutes before you eat your little piece of heaven to let the strawberries mix with the cream. Then eat up.
2. Bring Cash
You will need cash to pay for the Rodeo and food in the area. There is an ATM outside, but it’s so much faster to just have some cash on hand.
3. Get Your Ticket Early
Mutton Busting maybe my favorite part of any rodeo, it starts at 7:30 and you don't want to miss it standing in line for a ticket. This Rodeo sells out, so don't wait to get your ticket until it’s too late.
4. Go to Mutton Busting
Little kids holding on to sheep for dear life. Enough said.
5. Bring a blanket
It may be the longest day of the year, but you will be sitting for a long time after dark. So bring a blanket to cuddle up in, especially if you stay for the firework show on Saturday night.
6. What to Wear
Not a cowboy/cowgirl in real life? No one knows that, so get a sparkly belt buckle and some pearl snaps to look the part. If you are really into it grab a pair of cowboy boots and a Stetson.
7. Enjoy everything that Strawberry Days has to offer.
Come out early for the carnival and craft fair. Don't worry if you stay out late Friday night because the parade doesn't start until 10:00 AM Saturday (June 22nd).
