One of the best events I visited this summer was the Bella Coola Rodeo.
It is one of the largest amateur rodeos in Western
Canada and a real wild west event. Cowhands show their skills
kicking off with a gymkhana, and competing in bronco riding, barrel
racing, calf tie-down, team roping, bull riding and the infamous cow
And besides all the rodeo fun and the dance every night, the Bella Coola rodeo grounds are surrounded by the most spectacular scenery ever! The valley really is very special and I'll definetely be back for the Rodeo!
