Fair and Rodeo Weekend: Part Two

There were 145 entries in the rodeo parade this year. Here are some of my favorites.

flag_thumb5Horses, horses, and lots more horses.


Bag pipes-a perennial favorite.

car_thumb3 The Shriners. Grown men in tiny cars-but for a good cause-helping children.


A new entry this year- from Hawaii!





Men in heels. The point of wearing them was to raise public awareness on the issue of domestic violence. This picture was taken at the start of the parade-and I bet there were some blisters by the end.

salmon_thumb3 The Department of Natural Resources entered a salmon this year. As you can see, it was so big it had to be carried by two guys.


A motorcycle stunt team from Seattle. I loved those vintage style uniforms!

tractor_thumb3This one is for my dad, a former farm boy, who loves these wonderful vintage tractors.



sin_thumb2These trailers belong to members of a local club of camping cowgirls. They were all very cute and very cool, too!

rollerderby_thumb2Ellensburg’s very own roller derby team.

horse_thumb1 Another interesting brand-a bear paw.

costumes_thumb2 I think this is about the most colorful photo I took. The costumes were stunning!


I took my camera to the rodeo, but only snapped a couple pictures before I decided to put it away and just enjoy the show.


I did get a photo of this guy, rodeo clown JJ Harrison. He did a great job keeping us entertained for three hours!


And there you have it!


See you on Friday! Hope you are all having a great week!
