The Gunlock Rodeo has been held annually since 1945. This year’s show will be held July 5-7, featuring contestants of all ages from throughout the western states. Besides calf roping, breakaway, barrel racing, and team roping, there will be Gunlock’s unique Donkey-Watermelon Race. The littlest cowboys and girls can ride a calf and participate in the chicken chase. Low gate fees make it possible for the whole family to enjoy a cool evening under the shade of ancient cottonwoods. Shows will begin at 8:00 p.m.
