Don King Days ~ September 5-7, 2015

2015 marks the 27th anniversary of Don King Days. Always held over Labor Day weekend, this grand celebration features a variety of events, such as championship steer roping, old style bronc riding, and polo. The best part is that all the fun is right in front of you . . . no arena fences or barriers.
Again this year Don King Days will be hosting World Championship Blacksmiths Horseshoeing Contest starting on Saturday,
September 5, and continuing throughout the weekend.

The clubhouse is rockin' and rollin' every day and into the evening. Live music Sunday night. Everyone is welcome at the clubhouse!
