Fiesta Days kicks off this week in Kamas

Residents in the Kamas Valley will celebrate Pioneer Day this week with fireworks, rodeos and the Fiesta Days demolition derby.

Those who attend the festival this year can participate in an all-terrain vehicle rodeo, a Dutch oven cooking contest, fun run, talent show or trap-shooting contest.

However, the popular demolition derby is sold out.

The theme this year is "A Home Town Celebration."

The ATV rodeo is scheduled at the Kamas Rodeo Arena Wednesday at 7 p.m.

"It’s just like your real rodeos but you’re using ATVs," said Sarah Abrams, an employee at Weller Recreation in Kamas.

Kamas Valley residents can register for the ATV rodeo Wednesday evening at the rodeo grounds from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.

"In Kamas, it’s fairly new. This is our third year," Abrams said. "It keeps getting bigger every year."

The 2010 Kamas Valley Fiesta Days also kicks off Wednesday with a volleyball competition at Kamas City Park at 6 p.m.

The rodeo on July 22 begins at the Kamas Rodeo Arena at 8 p.m. Fireworks and a dance follow the event.

A parade is scheduled on Main Street in Kamas July 23 at 5 p.m. Bull Wars begins at the rodeo arena Friday at 8 p.m.

Meanwhile, Kamas Valley Fiesta Days culminates July 24 with a foot race, car show and kids’ parade.

"It is affordable for the family to come see the rodeo or the Bull Wars," Kamas City Councilman Kevan Todd said. "And it’s nice and cool in Kamas this time of year."

An auction at Kamas City Park on July 24 at 12:30 p.m. will raise money for Primary Children’s Medical Center, he said.

"We’re going to donate 100 percent of the proceeds to Primary Children’s hospital," Todd said in a telephone interview Monday.
