Dodge City Days Rodeo

Ask anyone what the defining trait of Dodge City Days is.
Sure, there's the kickoff concert, the barbecue contest and the parade through downtown. There's the Quack Attack, Wacky Trikes and races at Dodge City Raceway Park. There's a touch of class with the Depot Theater's cabaret, and a touch of rock with the street dances.
But any local will tell you: Dodge City Days means the greatest show on dirt.
It's hot summer nights along the Arkansas River bed, Dodge City's lights in the distance and bugs swarming the stadium lights. It's the smell of fried food and beer, watching the storms roll in from the east and the firecracker pop of metal gates snapping open and shut.
Ask anyone. The rodeo owns Dodge City Days.
