Ropers, racers and riders gathered at the Elbert County Fairgrounds in Kiowa for the 2013 Cowboy Up in Kiowa Rodeo. The annual summertime favorite, held June 28 and 29, is a partnership between the rodeo, the Town of Kiowa, and the Kiowa Fire Department offering local fun for rodeo lovers of all ages and skill levels. Cowboy Up is a small non-profit; this organization runs on donations and volunteer time. The rodeo is sanctioned by the Colorado Professional Rodeo Association and kicks off the upcoming Elbert County Fair activities. Photos by Deborah Grigsby
