Carbondale Wild West Rodeo kicks off on Thursday June 1st. It will make you jump for joy. Don’t miss out. Come out and enjoy the thrills and spills and fantastic food and be the first to sit under cover on our new covered grandstand. The sound system has been improved, announcers stand rebuilt as well.
