And so it has begun…. Starting today I will post favorite pictures from the past to celebrate an event that has been going strong for more than seven decades!!!
2004 was the first CJD parade that I covered for the love of the event and the sport of rodeo before officially working for Chief Joseph Days Rodeo in 2010.
Chief Joseph Days Rodeo, an event and festivities that have grown into an amazing medium-size rodeo featuring four PRCA performances with world-class competitors, Nez Perce Encampment Pavilion festivities, up-town shopping, entertainment galore, and so much more…
We are not only #PRCA#ProRodeo where you can “Feel the Thunder”, we are -The Rodeo with a View- in Wallowa County, Oregon!!!
“FEEL THE THUNDER” Always the last full week in July!…
