100th Anniversary of the Rio Grande Rodeo

The Rio Grande Store and Post Office and its small cluster of buildings and houses made up the east half of the community of Rio Grande. Across the road was St. Patrick's Catholic Church and Rectory and the Rio Grande Hall, ca. 1930

I found this ad for tenders for booths at the Rio Grande Rodeo in the June 14, 1929 newspaper, and thought it was a bit of a different look at the planning that went into this event.  There is an excellent history of the Rio Grande Rodeo on their website.
