The 2010 San Miguel Basin County Fair and Rodeo celebrates 100 years of 4H in Norwood this week – so put on your western wear and prepare yourself for several days of down home, country fun. The annual eight-day event kicked off with a baking contest and dessert tasting party in the New All Purpose Room at the Norwood School – free and open to the public – on Sunday, July 11th and will finish up with Jackpot Team Roping at the outdoor Rodeo Arena on Sun., July 18th.
Each day offers a variety of activities – from the showing and judging of beef, swine, lambs, goats, pocket pets and small animals to a genuine, bonafide carnival – starting on Wed. July 14th @ 5:00 pm – to Junior and CPRA Rodeos – and it's a great opportunity to get a taste of life down in the wild west end of San Miguel and Montrose County. Ongoing all week, in the NAPR, one can view judged and juried exhibits of Needle Art, Arts & Crafts, Fine Art, Horticulture, Floriculture and Culinary.
