Sisters, Oregon Parade and Rodeo

Today was another trip to Sisters, a wonderful small town (pop. 2,038) in central Oregon. But, there were at least triple the local population here today.  We arrived in time to get donuts and coffee at Sisters Bakery and set up our chairs for the 9:30 a.m. parade.  The 45 minute parade featured local civic groups, Miss Rodeo America, Miss Oregon, Rodeo Queens from at least a dozen Oregon counties, and one band, which was old timers seated on a flatbed truck.  Afterwards we ate lunch at Bronco Billies and headed for the rodeo.  Today was Bucking Broncos, Bull Riders, Calf Roping, Team Calf Roping, and Barrel Racing.  We had a great time.
