THREE: FROM KIDS TEARING UP THE DIRT TO MUSICIANS ROCKIN OUT!
28, 2014 (GREELEY, CO) If I created one second videos of Saturday’s events at
the Stampede and put them all together, I’d have an hour long program. The day
started out beautifully with the Kids Rodeo (I use the term Kids loosely, being
that some of them are in their late teens) and ended with Winger on the Free
Stage playing one hit after another.
Kids Rodeo Champions were awarded their Belt Buckles, by Kevin Rich, at the end
of the event to applause of many onlookers. A complete listing of scores and
placements will be posted at Greeleystampede.org.
Stampede brought back the Murder Mystery to Centennial Village for the second
year in a row. This year it was Western themed and it sold out a day
early. Miss Rodeo Colorado had its second competition, BMX Pros Stunt
Team and Marvelous Mutts both put on great shows in the heat of the day, the
carnival spun, flipped and dizzified many carnival goers, and of course food
was had by all.
legends Winger packed the Free Stage area with both the young and old with hits
that made us all feel “Seventeen” again. On the Arena Stage the amazing
sounds of Three Days Grace with songs like “Painkiller” couldn’t be contained
within the Arena Walls and the 8,000 rockin’ fans. They truly brought
down the house.

A quick turnaround in the arena for the last concert of the
Stampede’s first weekend, when the country artist that’s considered by many a
“Happy go lucky” singer who wants his audience to walk away from his concerts
happy, Billy Currington with LoCash Cowboys hit the stage at 8:00 pm.
