The 19th annual Wild West Days kicks off this evening in Viroqua, with plenty of fun for the whole family. There will once again be an all horse parade on Main Street starting at 6pm. Following that there will be bull riding and barrel racing at the Wild West Days grounds, and at the historic Temple Theatre Maggie May & The Heartland Country Band will play.
This years events will also include on Saturday One Act plays at various times, hog wrestling at 1pm, and another rodeo at 7pm. Then on Sunday there will be a cowboy breakfast from 7 to 11am, and another rodeo at 3pm.
In true Wild West fashion you can have someone arrested by talking to the Marshal’s, and even get their picture taken with a jail outfit on. Need a shave, there’s an old time barber you can see. Also on the grounds is an old time saloon, wild rose cafe, great food vendors, and and stage coach rides as well.
The grounds open at 9am on Saturday and Sunday, admission is only $3 for adults, and $2 for kids. Be sure to step back in time at Wild West Days this weekend, and listen to Q102 throughout the day on Saturday for updates, and information on what’s happening at the grounds.
