We are Planning our 102nd Annual Labor Day Weekend Festivities
September 1st - September 3rd, 2012,
We are Seeking Great Sponsors. The Trinidad Round-Up Association (TRA) needs sponsors to help with all events and activities for this fun filled weekend. This is a big achievement for Las Animas County!!! 102 YEARS of Rodeo Activity beginning before, lasting thru and continuing after the War. Our Rodeo is a great tradition in Las Animas County. We have a Three Day Rodeo, BBQ, Two Rodeo Dances with a local band playing for the dances, a Parade and the Las Animas County Fair, featuring the Youth of our Community. The Trinidad Round-Up Association was Voted in as 2004 Rodeo of the Year in the Texas Cowboys Rodeo Association (TCRA). This honor is voted on by the Members of the TCRA. Our Rodeos draw Crowds of 3000 plus people. It also draws contestants from Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Wyoming, Nebraska, Arizona, Montana and Ohio. The TRA was also the recipient of the Las Animas County Hispanic Chamber Civic Award in 2006.
