Wild Bill's Wild West Water Rodeo
Wild Bill's Wild West Water Rodeo!
July 24th - It's Pioneer Day and the perfect time to celebrate what makes Southwestern Utah, western indeed. It's hat's off to the cowboys with the guts and drive to explore the land and make it blossom in the desert. Wear those cowboy hats and bandanna's.
- Bull Riding (Float-A-Bull) - Contestants get points for style, and how fast you can get on. You have 30 sec to give us your best shot.
- Barrel Racing -This race is done on kayaks or paddle-boards. Get in there and race around the barrels floating on the water.
- Greased Watermelon Chase - If you've ever been a kid at a rodeo that entered the greased pig chase, this can be a lot of slippery fun. Kid friendly and loads of laughs.
- Goofy Paddle - Not quite a rodeo event, but a chance to make your own craft or paddle a non-traditional watercraft. No typical kayaks or SUP's allowed unless handmade from alternative items such as logs, water bottles, and pool noodles. Participants will race around the outside of the barrel racing course. This is for sure going to be a family favorite and barrel of laughs. Does your craft float?, can it go in a straight line?, how long did you stay on? Our cowboy judges can't wait to find out!
Roping - Alright cowboys let's see how fast you can lasso your target. Contestants start at the shore with a lasso in hand, paddle out the the bull, and lasso his horns. You will need to turn him 360º, undo the lasso, and paddle back.
