Springville's Annual Rodeo -  Springville Sierra PRCA Rodeo Runs Apr. 23-25, 2010
 

If you've been in the city too long, you can actually get away for a weekend of fun and old-fashioned boot-kicking rodeo action. Complete with beautiful beauty queens, broncin' bulls (and bull riders), and a festive downtown Rodeo Parade, Springville is the place to kick up a little dust and have some real fun.

Annual P.R.C.A. Rodeo in the foothills of the Sierra-Nevada mountains features entertainment of a world class rodeo combined with beauty queens, dances, cowboys & cowgirls and a visual feast, as well as great food sold.

 

Where is Springville? we asked ourselves. We found it on a map of California, located in Tulare County. It appears to be the Gateway to the Sequoia National Forest and is set in the Sierra Foothills of the mountains. Its elevation is around 1,000 feet. Beautiful and inspiring, it's the kind of place you may want to visit in the spring when the hillsides are dotted with wild flowers as the winter cold dissipates to greet summer blossoms.

Not everyone in the city is familiar with the rodeo culture or why rodeos exist. In Springville they explain this time honored tradition of a rodeo celebration (over 60 years strong), as a tribute to Springville's heritage as a farming and livestock region.

 

Today, the rodeo remains a Western event celebrated with finales in places such as huge arenas in Las Vegas. The popularity has not diminished within a particular culture that lives and breathes the country. For your city dwellers, Springville Rodeo is your best opportunity to get out and see California and the surrounding beauty of the Sequoias.
