The Event Of The Summer
July 4, 5 & 6 
From the STARS that pop in a fireworks display, to the SPURS that jangle on boots tapping to the rhythm of country music…
From children playing firefighter-firefighter and touching trucks, to stickhorse rodeo and mutton bustin’…
From high school students showing off their rodeo skills, to FFA students displaying their prize animals…
From mothers, daughters and grandmas meandering through market stalls, to dads, sons and grandpas checking out vintage cars and antique farm implements…
From family picnics on the beautiful racetrack at Oak Ridge, to families around a table enjoying the best food truck fair…
From sharing a local cider or craft beer with buddies, to sipping wine at sunset in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains…
From buckin’ bulls and barrel races, to the jumping, crunching and crushing of huge monster trucks…
Get it all and then some at @starsandspurs2024  #july4th #nelsoncountyva #rodeo #virginia #winecountry #mountaingetaway #roanoke #rva #cville
