Brush Rodeo and Fireworks

Monday evening, we went back to Brush and attended the Rodeo.

Of course if you get a snowcone that is always Kevin is trying to "steal" it.

The rodeo starts with the presentation of the flags and the national anthem.

There were many many events, bronc riding, bareback riding, bull riding, barrel racing, team roping, and below is steer wrestling...

We made sure that EVERYONE knew Florian was from Germany.  Here he met the rodeo clown, and the clown announced he was visiting, and the entire crowd applauded, it was very cool.  

After the rodeo, all the lights went out and we enjoyed a nice presentation of fireworks to top of Independence day.  It was a nice way to spend America's birthday.  We hope Florian learned a lot about rodeo, and enjoyed watching all the various events.

I don't know why I can leave a post. But I will try again.
Cool Pictures. Florian must tell us about rodeo, I only know, that there a horse unwilling in riding and man willing in riding. That's the problem. And the Clown is that one who saves the man.
Sure? ;o)))

There are many events in the rodeo. Calf Roping, Steer Wrestling, and others but most people got to watch the bronco riding, barrel racing, and bull riding. The bronco and bull riding are very dangerous events and are very exciting to watch. The clown helps distract the bull from attacking the rider after the rider gets off the bull. Check out youtube for videos of these events.

I'm just joking. I have a big brother and as a child we are looking every western film we can get. But I'm allways thinking about the men or women which will be hurt.
