Bishop Mule Days - May 25 to 28, 2006
Every year during the Memorial Day Weekend, over 700 Mules compete in 181 events at the Bishop Mule Days Celebration. There is no way to actually describe Mule Days. It is part mule show, part test of skills, and part Wild West show.
Situated on the Tri-County Fairgrounds in Bishop, CA, Mule Days has become an international world class event. Crowds have grown from 200 to over 30,000 fans!
Highlights of the Celebration include the Thursday night concert, featuring Country Music stars, the longest running non-motorized parade on Saturday morning, Steer roping and penning, an event normally reserved for quarter horses, and the Packer's Scramble -- "the wildest, nosiest and funniest event of the weekend".
There are also barbecues, country dances and an arts & crafts show. All taking place at the foot of the beautiful Eastern Sierra.
