Empire Ranch Fall Roundup: A Slideshow!by Jim Gressinger on Nov. 04, 2013, under Day/Weekend Adventures, Fairs & Festivals, Old West
Last Saturday was the 13th Annual Empire Ranch Fall Roundup. Ms. Karen & I were there most of the day to take photographs. This fundraising event was a celebration of ranching life in Southern Arizona. Given the size of the crowd, it seemed like a very successful effort on the part of a lot of volunteers, donors, and sponsors.
All day long there were exhibitions, reenactments, entertainment, food, and demonstrations related to life on the Empire Ranch over the past 150 years. There was so much going on that we couldn’t get to all the Western skills demonstrations or “Cowboy Conversations”.
There was plenty for the younger kids to see & do, and the older folks seemed to appreciate the historical significance.
