Bishop’s Mule Days a real kick!
More than 700 mules will compete in 181 events in the Bishop Mule Days Celebration at the Tri-County Fairgrounds, May 24-29. Check out the longest-running, non-motorized parade, steer roping and penning, and the Packer’s Scramble, the show’s wildest, noisiest — and funniest — event, as well as barbecues, country dances and arts & crafts.
This year, wildly popular country singer and live performer Neil McCoy, who headlined Mule Days in 2002, returns to the Mike Boothe Memorial Arena on the Fairgrounds on May 26 at 7 p.m. And Dave Stamey, two-time Western Music Association Entertainer of the Year, will headline the Opening Night Supper on Wednesday, May 25, at 5 p.m. in the Charles Brown Auditorium.
