COARSEGOLD — Coarsegold rodeo is coming up very soon. It is from Friday, April 29 to Sunday, May 1. April 29 is Heritage Day. Heritage Day is a day of exciting events like hands-on learning booths, gold panning, basket weaving, Native American tribal dancing, petting zoo, face painting, fossil digging, a K-9 unit and vehicles and a horse show with barrel racing, roping and more.
April 30 and May 1 are the actual rodeo days. The rodeo has hands-booths, animals, and of course horses.
At the rodeo Coarsegold 4-H will have a snow cone and candy booth. Kids from our club work in the booth for both of the rodeo days. It’s a good fun experience and the snow cones are delicious.
Our leader is Pat Strimling and if you would like to join you can contact her at (559) 683-5149. Anyone can join! You don’t have to go to Coarsegold school to be in Coarsegold 4-H. You can live anywhere in Madera County as long as you can come to our meetings.
