The BHS has been CONSTANTLY changing. Notice this year they only sold 45 bucking horses.
When I was a kid, there were bucking horses and horse races. No bulls. Matched bronc rides came and went over the decades. Wild horse races also have come and gone.
The parade started about ten years in.
All the activities in the park, like the Quick Draw and farmers market and food, none of that existed until the 1980s.
There were professional wrestlers a couple of times.
There was an ice cream social but it wasn't adequately patronized so it went away.
Carnivals have come and gone over the years.
If you think you have great ideas for improving the BHS, trot down to the Chamber and volunteer.
Oh, and attendance hasn't been dropping steadily. HORSE sales are dropping because the market for horses is so bad but hotels fill up, money is spent and a good time is had by most people.
