Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo

When: July 10-13 2013

What do you get when you mix dust, blood, flashy belt buckles and pissed-off mammals? There are probably many ways to answer that question, but today you get the 73rd annual Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo. Arrive at 7:15 at the Norris-Penrose Event Center (1045 Lower Gold Camp Road, pikespeakorbust.org) to witness main events such as roping, barrel racing and of course, bull riding, or come early at 4 for Western-themed family activities. The rodeo continues daily, same time same place, through Saturday, which includes a 12:45 p.m. matinee. Walk-up ticket prices are $15 to $35 for adults, but are cheaper in advance either online or at the center's ticket office. Kids 12 and under get in for half price (and just a buck at the Saturday matinee); tots 2 and under watch for free. — Hannah Brenneman
