Cowtown Rodeo is Celebrating its 70th Consecutive Year

I remember going when I was little with my parents, returning with my kids a few years ago and we had the best time.

It was such a fun and exciting experience.

We went early and walked around the flea market. There's lots of food and drinks and you can tailgate in the parking lot too. And parking is FREE.

There are no bad seats! You're right there close to all the action.

Cowtown Rodeo is located in Pilesgrove, Salem County.
