Ever wanted to pretend to be a cowboy? Then don your hat and head out to the Shady Dale Rodeo this weekend! There will be enough giant belt buckles, cowboy hats and bucking animals to grant your wish for the cowboy life. This isn’t a bunch of dudes with a horse, bull and a couple of sheep either. The Shady Dale Rodeo is the real deal, and has been for the last three decades. The roundup festival starts at 11 a.m. Saturday and the American Legion Rodeo parade starts at 3 p.m. Of course there will be food – I bet you can get funnel cakes there too, which makes it worth your time even if you don’t watch the rodeo.
