First day of National Western Stock Show has plenty of activities to enjoy

Story and photos by Lincoln Rogers | for The Fence Post

The 112th annual National Western Stock Show opened Jan. 6 with mild temperatures and plenty of things to do.

Besides eating and shopping, which always is a draw, the full schedule brought thousands of people to the complex to enjoy other things such as cattle shows, the historic stockyards, a traditional ranch rodeo, the Colorado fiddle championships and three packed performances of the popular Colorado vs. the World invitational rodeo.
