Each year, the Little Snake River Lions Club sponsors, with volunteer help, the annual rodeo and Fun Day.  Fun Day features an amateur rodeo and lots of family events like ribbon roping, junior bull riding and mutton busting.  A high point is the pig and chicken catching by community members of various age groups, from under 2 to adult women (hey guys, are you cowards?!)

This year, an added feature was rain–the first in many weeks.  Nobody cared that they were muddy as they chased barrels and pigs.  All were really happy to see the moisture.
