A Message From The Bunkhouse


Howdy Partners,

The 2017 Holiday at Home Festival was a great success. A BIG "Cowboy Thank You” for your participation and support. The weather was fantastic and several food vendors completely emptied their chuck wagons. The Arts & Crafts vendors also were able to corral enough buyers to be very successful. I hear tell that after attending the Children’s Area many parents were quite willing to let their "children grow-up to be cowboys and cowgirls" contrary to the popular song promoting the opposite. The sounds of many different genres filled the “north 40” with lots of good campfire music. The car show and invitational shows drew a lot of praise like a corral full of purebred horses. The Parade was obviously a huge success with an estimated 90+ thousand onlookers lining the route.

The Planning Committee put in many hours to organize and present this year’s attractions. Many thanks to all of the members who donated so much of their time so you could enjoy this year’s festival.

We must also thank our sponsors, both large and small, for their contributions. And as always we must thank the City of Kettering for their outstanding support allowing us to transform the Fountains, Common Areas, parking lots and road closings into the rodeo, the likes of which has never been seen before in this neck of the woods.

We look forward to seeing you in 2018 for another great festival.

And remember To:

“Saddle Up, This Ain’t Our First Rodeo.”
