As well, Westerner Park is encouraging all previous tarp sponsors to recruit a new sponsor to this year’s Tarp Auction. If both sponsors successfully purchase tarps, the previous tarp sponsor will be provided with the opportunity to display a 4 x 8 banner in the chuckwagon bowl for the duration of the Pony Chuckwagon races!

Businesses are invited to join the Westerner Days Fair & Exposition Pony Chuckwagon Committee for a night of bidding battles and down home western hospitality.
