If you didn’t see the PRCA Rodeo/Chili Cook-Off at Shawnee last weekend, you really missed out on an awesome event!
First off, the chili cook-off was delicious! They had many different recipes and chiefs that entered, some were mild and sweet, whereas others were really spicy, one sample literally sent our manager running for a drink! They also had a great variety of vendors, with things like cowboy-hats/boots, jewelry, and sheds (of course!). Plus they had so great food and drink vendors too, the funnel cake was delicious!
At 2:00 PM the rodeo started, our vendor booth was very close to the area where they set up, so we had a pretty good view, and it was great! It was so awesome to see all the cowboys and cowgirls who came out to compete. There several different competitions thought the show, including saddle & bareback bronc riding, barrel racing, bull riding, calf roping, team roping and bull dogging. We came both days and even brought the whole family on Sunday, everyone had a great time and we hope to be a part of this event next year!
