Eagle County fair and rodeo: family style fun and celebration for all ages
Parties or any kind of celebration for grownups seem to be of broadly 3 kinds. Either they are a) Fancy indoor parties with a posh crowd, sober and mature decor and food to satisfy equally delicate and mature palate. Then there is the other kind b) the ones with their loud music, people dancing or yelling above the music trying to be heard and again catered food, and finally, c) parties for children which the adults in their lives are obligated to attend no matter how old the children become.
All other kinds of parties or merrymakings are permutations and combinations of these three fundamental kinds; it’s rarely that we adults get a chance to have a good time outdoors and let loose ourselves, especially like we used to when we were children or at least substantially younger. Only when certain carnivals or fairs are in town that we can relive some of our childhood days and their best memories; it is the Eagle County Fair and Rodeo, a celebration which addresses this exact problem.
