Wickenburg Parade and Senior Pro Rodeo

One day in February 2024 was a busy day in Wickenburg, Arizona.   In the morning, it was the Gold Rush Days Parade in downtown Wickenburg.   Then, in the afternoon it was action at the Senior Pro Rodeo.

Before the morning parade, we saw trick roper and shooter Will Roberts.   Will is also an actor.  If you can remember seeing Ozympic commercials, you would have seen him doing roping tricks.  He also plays General George Marshall in the movie "Oppenheimer."  

The parade featured local politicians, fancy and old cars, and of course horses, cowboy, and cowgirls.

Now, on to the rodeo at the rodeo grounds.  It's the senior pro rodeo.   These feature cowboys and cowgirls up to, believe it or not, 70 years old.  And they are good.

These folks might be legends, but they still have to pay the entry fee.  And losing or not qualifying means they are out that money and need to go to the next rodeo.

Until My Next Adventure,

See you on down the road,
