Who’s ready for some mutton bustin, washer pitching, wild cow milking and peach eating? If you are down right curious to what in the world all those events have in common, they are just a few of the spectacular things that will be going on at the Peach JAMboree & Rodeo in Stonewall, TX, June 20-21, 2014.
This year marks the 53rd anniversary of this consistently popular event in Stonewall. At the foundation of this party is a celebration of the annual peach crop. Whether you call them Stonewall peaches, Fredericksburg peaches or Texas Hill Country peaches, you won’t taste a better peach than what comes from our local crops. During the season you will find all kinds of roadside stands and farms where you can pick them or get them handed right to you. If you ask a local, they’ll tell you they’re so sweet it’s like eating candy. So, why not have a celebration in honor of this tasty bounty?
If you have never wandered over our way for this annual summer event, now is the time! You are in for a real treat-the entire weekend is non-stop fun whether you come alone or bring your whole family or crew of friends for a road trip. Out of the gate on Friday night the celebration starts with mutton bustin (where children ride and race sheep), followed by a rodeo and then a dance. A fantastic cowboy breakfast starts the day on Saturday and then it is on from there. You will be able to take in a parade, the baking, preserve and salsa contest, BBQ for lunch, a “42” Domino tournament, antique tractor exhibit, washer pitching tournament, peach show and peach eating contest, and another rodeo and dance! There is absolutely no shortage of great fun to be had and you do not want to miss it.
