We hit a landmark year in 2016, and had a great 65th Rex Allen Days Event!
In the beginning of 2016, as we had a good year raising funds in 2015, we were able to donate a Scholarship to a graduating school senior, and provided a therapeutic bed for the Northern Cochise Community Hospital.
We brought in some new events and acts through Rex Allen Days in 2016, had an amazing turnout at the parade this year (86 entries! mind you, that doesn't include all the entries that had multiple vehicles or riders!!) and some awesome floats! Great job everyone!
2016 also saw a gun show (Thank you James Ballentyne, American Gunshows and American Ammo, and your vendors!!) in town during the weekend, and the producers report they were extremely impressed and happy with the turnout! Thank you for supporting the event! We've invited them back and hope it becomes an annual occurrence.
Thank you, all, for making Rex, his legacy of Western Adventure, Willcox and Southern Arizona a part of your family for ...now in the upcoming 2017, 66 years!!!
