The Fourth of July has arrived in the Texas Hill Country and that means the cowboys are back in Wimberley, Texas. The 65th annual VFW Rodeo takes place the first weekend in July and will officially kick off Thursday the 1st. The Wimberley Rodeo, one of the largest outdoor rodeos in the world, is an exciting three day event that attracts cowboy's from across the country. It is a sanctioned Pro Bull Riders Assoc. and Cowboys Professional Rodeo Assn. event, so expect to see some of the nation's top cowboys competing in events such as bull riding, roping events, bronc riding and barrel racing. There are lodging accommodations still available July 4th Weekend at the Inn Above Onion Creek Bed & Breakfast, which is conveniently located 12 miles from Wimberley, Texas.
