Bosque Farms, NM Fair: 68th Annual Community Fair runs August 2nd-5th!

By
Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Camco Realty

Bosque Farms, New Mexico, has one of the longest-running, old-time community fairs in the country! Next weekend, August 2-5, 2007, will mark the 68th Annual Bosque Farms Community Fair!

Bosque Farms FAir ContestsThe Bosque Farms Community Fair was first organized in 1939, shortly after Bosque Farms was first settled. Every year since then, the small community of Bosque Farms has sponsored this town-wide event that now feels like a step back into yester-year, with such favorite events as a toad races, a greased-pole climb, three-legged races for the kids and rolling-pin throws for the grandmas, plus a talent show for all ages. The community-wide parade features loads of local horsemen and groups competing for the best float, and there are also plenty of opportunities to compete in the horse show, rodeo, or livestock exhibits, or perhaps to win a blue ribbon for your champion pies, pickles, or pumplins! Need more? How about a car show, family dance, barbecue contest, auction, art show, and loads of 4H competitions?

 

Come on out to the Bosque Farms Rodeo Arena this weekend and see what makes Bosque Farms such a great place to live!

3 cheers for Bosque Farms and small-town living! This kind of time-honored tradition is what makes American's small towns special.

WOW!!  This sounds like a lot of fun and something that the whole family can go out because there is enough to keep everyone busy and entertained.  On top of that, its been going on since 1939.  Laura this is quite a line up of events.  Will you be participating in the festivities???

My family and I have participated for many years, in everything from horse shows to parade, through 4H events, cooking and gardening entries, and the art show! This year we were very busy with out-of-town guests (and lots of real estate buyers and sellers) so we only did the parade and a quick visit to the car show and the displays!
