I know this is old but I have been wanting to post pictures for some time. Actually, since October 27, 2010. Allen had their first stampede to start off the round of events for the rodeo to be held at the Allen Event Center. I skipped bible study to go and was so glad I did. It was one of the neatest things I have ever been to. I loved this picture of the policemen waiting to be escorts.
The "Queen" of the stampede (I am not sure of her title) was there with her court. I do wonder how you get this position.
The longhorns were so mild and we were able to get very close to them. I actually hid behind somebody because they kind of scared me.
The mayor got in on the act and was riding on top of a stage coach.
Definitely watch for this next Fall...it was one of the most exciting things I have done in a long time.
