Will Rodeo Return This Summer?

Your Carbondale Wild West Rodeo Association Board looks forward to when we can be up close and personal cheering on our great rodeo contestants, enjoying a snocone from Senior Matters, some awesome barbecue, popcorn from 4-H and a lot of laughter and thrills. We miss you all and have been planning all winter and spring for a fantastic 2020 Carbondale Wild West Rodeo Season. However, we want to practice caution and insure that all are safe when we gather together again. We will rodeo when the Town of Carbondale allows use of the Gus Darien Arena and for people to gather together in groups.

Peter does every task with a smile on his face and is a huge encourager of the younger set in the Mutton Bustin' and Calf Scramble. You won't hear Peter complain and he's always quick to offer a helping hand to anyone in need. Peter is a good sport and can always be seen at Hawaiian Night wearing a grass skirt, bright floral shirt and lei on his cowboy hat.
