The 79th Bronc Day revives the combination of the traditional event with parade ,kids games/rides, musical entertainment, pie contest, Stick Pony Rodeo, arts and crafts booths, and a concert performed by The Doo Wah Riders.
This year features a revival of an old partnership between the Bronc Day Committee and the Ute Pass Saddle Club.
This year, the Saddle Club will provide an entertaining Stick Pony Rodeo for young kids, action moves to the Stampede Rodeo Arena for a wild west rodeo, and The Doo Wah Riders in concert.
Bronc Day festivities start with a pancake breakfast at the fire station. Then, stay for a big parade that features the Fort Carson Mounted Color Guard wearing 1874 pattern Cavalry uniforms and the Pikes Peak Highlanders pipe and drum marching band. Also in the parade will be fire engines, floats, horses, antique cars, Victorian dancers, Troop 18 Boy Scouts, cowboys, and kids on decorated bicycles. The rest of the day will have fun for the whole family including a rubber duck race, gold panning, a 26 foot high air slide, Disney bounce house, RC model boat races, and a best pie contest.
Ted Newman, renowned country and western singer, will perform at the Farm Stand.
Arts, crafts, and food booths will line the lake shore.
