art walk - where you're sure to have an art attack

  1. Mike, thanks for your comment! I had a hard time finding details about the Rodeo events so this is great information to have.

  2. If you plan to come to the Rodeo in Lakeside this weekend, there’s a lot more going on, so plan on spending the day – especially on Saturday! Lakeside Western Day Parade doesn’t get much press, but it’s the 46th Annual this year, kicks off at 9:30 am, from Woodside at Wintergardens to Maine, left on Maine through the historic district. More horses than just about any other parade, bands, clowns, kids, locals… a fun time! See our website or Lakeside Rodeo and Western Days Parade on Facebook for all that’s going on!
