So, what exactly is there to do on the 24th of July? It's a UTAH only holiday right?
(To see other Ogden Murals, check out our post here.)
Stephanie is sharing the Ogden Rodeo and then Coupons4Utah has a giant list of things to do all over Utah on the 24th of July. (Check link below.)
The Rodeo is one of my favorite summer activities. We haven't been for a few years because apparently we keep having babies, but tonight we made it happen.
It is usually scorching hot! And there is no shade, but this night was absolutely perfect and I even wished I had a blanket at then end.
Pre-Rodeo starts at 6:30, this is a must for the kids.
They do awesome stuff like mutton bustin' and musical chairs, minus the chairs and add horses.
The barrel races are my favorite. You know, just living vicariously through those ladies. I've always wanted to be in a rodeo.
Then they save the bulls for last. They are massive beasts. Luckily, no one was hurt.
This is an all night affair.
Be prepared to spend astronomical amounts of money on food and drinks. We ate before we came but still, by 10 pm, everyone was ready for forth meal.
We ended up leaving half way through the bulls because it was 10:30 and they kids were tired. Or maybe the littlest kid and mom was tired
Rodeo runs July 20th-24th with a parade the morning of the 24th on Washington. We go every year! Its a good one.
Things to do for the 24th of July
Check out this huge list of Things to Do for the 24th of July! I just tried counting the list, it's over 40! Coupons 4 Utah basically, just put The Salt Project to shame. ;0)
We are so glad they put this post together, be sure to check out their post here.
Come early. Parking is hard to come by. Be prepared to walk a few blocks.
Eat before you come. Not a big selection of grub for littles other than funnel cakes.
Bust out your boots. I promise, you will definitely want to dress in your rodeo finest for this event.
