Jubilee celebration

Attendance jumps for annual festival

Crowds gathered around the arena under canopies of various shapes and sizes as the setting sun glistened off the nylon ropes of the riders at the Moorcroft Ranch Rodeo Friday evening, opening the weekend to the 57th Moorcroft Jubilee.

While many guests filled the long tables in front of the West Texas Trail Museum for breakfast, others joined the walk/run at Robinson Park.

The presentation of the 50 state flags were again the star of the parade, the barbecue lunch at the fire hall fed about 900 people this year and the Splash Bash soaked around 140 kids.

The afternoon's very warm temperatures...
