Capital’s Funtier Days, Memorial Day Weekend
Bandera, Texas, May 5, 2015
Funtier Days celebration kicks off Friday, May 22, with the Bandera
ProRodeo’s first performance of the PRCA and WPRA rodeo at 7:30 PM at Mansfield
Park, Bandera, TX. Produced by Neal Gay’s Rafter G Rodeo Company,
spectators can expect to see top rodeo contestants from around the nation
competing for the top prize money. Even the little cowpokes in the
audience get a chance to compete in the stick horse races and the ever popular
mutton bustin’. Three time pro-rodeo entertainer of the year, Whiplash the
Cowboy Monkey, riding his trusted Border collie mount, will show off his skills
at herding sheep. Performances are also scheduled on Saturday and Sunday
(5/22 & 23) at 7:30 PM.
The fun continues on Saturday, May
23, when the Funtier Day Parade takes over Bandera’s Main Street. The
parade begins at 11:00 AM but you will want to stake your place along the parade
route early. After the parade stroll to the Courthouse lawn filled with
arts and crafts vendors. Take a break and enjoy the free entertainment.
On Sunday you can return to the Courthouse lawn for that final purchase.
All BBQ lovers won’t want to miss the
“Get Your Cook-On BBQ Cook-off” on Saturday at Mansfield Park during the day.
Sanctioned by the Lonestar Barbecue Society, competitors from around the state
will be vying for points for the Texas State Championship. You may even be
lucky enough to be chosen as a judge.
