Event Will Conclude the Buena Vista River Festival
The first annual Buena Vista Pro Rodeo will be held on May 24, 2008 on the new and improved Buena Vista River Park in Buena Vista, Colorado. A Pro Freestyle Competition will be followed by an evening party and awards ceremony. The event will divide a $2000 cash purse between winners in Men’s and Women’s divisions, and preliminaries and finals will both take place on Saturday May 24.
The Buena Vista Pro Rodeo will culminate the Buena Vista River Festival, a series of paddling events lasting from May 16 to May 24. The CKS Paddle Fest is “The Kickoff” to the 2008 paddling season and will take place from May 16-18, 2008. The world famous Pimp and Ho Rodeo and Party will take place on Wednesday May 21st. And the Buena Vista Pro Rodeo will conclude the action and be the first pro freestyle competition to take place at the Buena Vista River Park.
Buena Vista is a national paddling destination thanks to the abundance of playboating, creeking and river running in the Arkansas Valley Headwaters region. The Buena Vista River Park has become a major playboating destination. It now has four features complete with annual maintenance continually improving their quality. With snowpack in the Arkansas River drainage currently at 165%, the Buena Vista Pro Rodeo promises to be a freestyle event of the highest quality, continuing the momentum of the high profile CKS Paddle Fest and the world famous Pimp and Ho Rodeo and party.
