LUSK – The second weekend in July is always eventful in Lusk and this year was no different. The 2019 Legend of Rawhide promised more action and activity than ever and it delivered. With auctions, raffles, dances, poker games and much more the Legend brought some old-west entertainment and fun to the town of Lusk once again.
With a cast of over 400 volunteers and bringing in over 1000 spectators, the largest event in Niobrara County did not disappoint. The first night brought the wild west a little closer when Brock Hladky was injured in a horse wreck during one of the Indian Brave runs but Hladky is recovering well and the show continued on.
The Poker tournament, corn hole tournament, team driving contest and grass volleyball tournament were all well attended and even if the contestants ended up a little sunburned fun was had by all.
Out of town attendance seemed to be up this year and Jittima R. Catalano of Fort Collins, CO commented that “The Legend of Rawhide pageant was the best show ever!”
Many thanks to the Legend of Rawhide board, volunteers and volunteer cast members for making it another successful year. Don’t forget to mark your calendars for the Legend 2020 July 10-12.
