This year the “The World’s Oldest Rodeo” (since 1888) in Prescott, AZ still took place with limited attendance at 25%. I gladly volunteered in hospitality, of course donning gloves and a face mask when near folks. As expected, several of the other events were cancelled including the parades, country western dances and some vendors.
The Prescott Frontier Days Mission Statement –
“Prescott Frontier Days, Inc. a non-profit volunteer organization, is dedicated to the continuation and enhancement of the World’s Oldest Rodeo and western traditions, while enriching its community, both culturally and financially.”
Much of the proceeds are donated to local charities. We can look forward to 2021 with anticipation and hope that all the events will take place.
