Rodeo Kickoff Party

This year’s Rodeo Kickoff Party was once again a great way jump in to our summer festivities.

This year we had live music from our favorite band, the Yampa Valley Boys. Their music always attracts passers-by and compels them to stop for a while and enjoy a perfect summer afternoon. And that what makes the rodeo kickoff party so much fun; it’s just an informal event for anyone who has a few extra moments to enjoy the moment.

We loved visiting with our usual friends as well as all the visitors that stopped by. Everyone enjoyed great music and free root beer floats and popcorn. We also gave away some rodeo tickets. After all, the beginning of rodeo season is the excuse we are using to throw a party.

Of course, the party is just the beginning of the fun. The rodeo fun continues all summer long. A full schedule of events can be found on the Steamboat Springs Pro Rodeo’s website. You can pick up tickets in F.M. Light & Sons all summer long.


Live music and sunshine. Thank you Yampa Valley Boys!

If you enjoy genuine western music, then also check out the Yampa Valley Boys website. They preform at various venues regularly and are always a treat to hear.

So if we don’t see you at the rodeo, then we certainly hope to see you around town. Stop on by and say “howdy!”
