When? evening, at the Cornerstone Center in Haigler.
Cheyenne has its Frontier Days event; Haigler is having its Wild West event. It is said there is a little bit of cowboy and cowgirl in each of us just waiting to be set free. So put your boots on, saddle up, cowboy up, giddy up and head to Haigler for an evening of great entertainment. Wanted posters are out for the best dressed cowboy & cowgirl-----but you don't have to dress country to attend. Everyone is welcome!
The event begins at and ends at . The historic gymnasium at the Cornerstone Center will be festively decorated like the old time barn dances. Enjoy eating barbecued beef hamburgers and hotdogs, baked beans, chips, drinks, and brownies. Wet your whistle and enjoy drinking a beer or glass of wine in the outdoor tented beer garden. Enjoy listening and dancing to live music with the Ron Scott Band, along with Kelly Hayward.
Whether you are an 'old coot' or 'young whipper snapper,' bring pictures and stories of your cowboy/cowgirl events to share. BYOR (bring your own rope) and join the fun of arena olympics. Bring a stick horse and participate in the stick horse parade. Try the Paul Jones Dance and the Boot Scramble. Whether you are a participant or an observer, it will be a good time. Cash and prizes will be awarded for many of the activities. Enter your name in the drawings to win a hand woven saddle blanket donated by Tecker Ranch; angus beef steaks donated by Windmill Angus Ranch; various cowboy/cowgirl tack items; and other gift baskets.
There is no charge for this event; admission is free. Over 20 local ranches, farms, feedlots, cattle companies, and individuals are helping to sponsor this event for our tri-state communities. There will be boots available to give a free-will tax deductible donation to the Haigler Community Foundation. This event is the fundraiser kickoff for heating and air conditioning the historic gymnasium at the Cornerstone Center, and all donations will go towards that project.
Watch for fliers coming out soon. Hope to see ya'll at the Roundup in Haigler!
