A free, fun, evening of activities for families occurred from 5-7:30 p.m. June 22 at Rendezvous Park in West Fargo, ND.

The Parks and Rec Department orchestrated the Wild West Jamboree with lots of fun for kids and their parents.  Pony rides for a nomimal cost, a quick meal of a hot dog, chips and beverage could be purchased for a buck, inflatable games were an option for the younger ones, and October Road provided music for all.

Calf (plastic calf) roping and real horse/mule drawn wagon rides were available free and furnished by the Red River Harness and Saddle Club.
