California Rodeo Salinas
2018 California Rodeo... Cowgirl and Cowboy Up!
Every day (Jul 19-Jul 22)
Location: Salinas Sports Complex, 1034 Main Street , Salinas Map

(Special Event Images / Graphics) CaliforniaRodeoPoster2014.jpgKnown for its week-long cavalcade of events, California Rodeo "Big Week" is the largest community event held in Salinas. Parades, barbecues, cowboy poetry, fireworks, concerts, a carnival, and much more.

 

Big Week offers something for every member of the family, and a chance for the entire community to participate in the California Rodeo.

 

The Rodeo itself is designed to operate like a two-ring circus, each Rodeo performance features events that occur in the arena and on the track simultaneously. While the classic event of saddle bronc riding bucks out in the arena, a horse race speeds by on the track.

 

Each year, the Salinas Rodeo ranks in the top 20 of nearly 800 North American rodeos sanctioned by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association. For four action-packed days, more the 50,000 spectators pass through our gates to see the country's top professional rodeo athletes compete.

Library Central
Author Talk: Annette McGivney - mystery, murder, connection... healing
Date: 07/22/2018 from 1:30pm to 3:00pm
Admission Fees: Free

Part true crime and part memoir, Pure Land tells the story of the most brutal murder ever recorded in Grand Canyon's history. It forges a connection between two women in search of their true nature, who found transcendence in the West's most spectacular landscapes. It is also a tale of how child abuse leads to violence and destroys lives. And it is, ultimately, a story of healing.

Author Annette McGivney is the longtime Southwest Editor for Backpacker magazine and a Journalism professor at Northern Arizona University.

Books will be available for sale by the Friends of the Santa Cruz Public Libraries.
