Folks fascinated by the Old West—from Boston to Bakersfield—dusted off their Stetsons, polished their Tony Lamas, poured into their Wranglers and headed to Apache Junction to see some of the action that still makes the West wild.
Attendees and participants alike enjoyed perfect weather for three days (February 28 through March 1) of Grand Canyon Pro Rodeo Association sanctioned action, a parade on Saturday, an arts fair and a carnival that featured rides and attractions.
The parade began at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 29, in downtown Apache Junction and featured many participants from the community including businesses, schools, organizations and entertainers.
The Lost Dutchman Days Committee partners with many local youth-serving organizations and sponsors to “Put smiles on kid’s faces.” Profits from this event will be donated to youth-focused organizations in the Apache Junction community, such as the Boys and Girls Club, 4-H, AJ Little League, the AJHS Boosters and many more.
Please enjoy these photographs from News partner Donna Carr, who captured the fun and action at the Lost Dutchman Days Rodeo.
