Country dances to follow performances of Steamboat Rodeo Series

Steamboat Springs — Kenny Fuller, a former Boothill Bar & Grill owner, has decided to create a place for residents to dance the night away to live country music during the summer nights.
Fuller plans to feature live country music and dancing at the grounds of the Brent Romick Rodeo Arena after Saturday performances of the Steamboat Springs Pro Rodeo Series.
“Everyone always told me, ‘We need a country bar. We need a country place,'” Fuller said. “So I’m building a dance floor and giving folks a chance to dance under the Western Steamboat Springs skies.”
The rodeo dances will begin after each rodeo concludes, near the picnic areas at the rodeo arena, he said.
The dances will end Aug. 19.
Fuller said the dances are free to the public. Those younger than 21 will not be allowed into the dance because there will be alcohol available, Fuller said.
Fuller said the Steamboat Springs Profess-
ional Rodeo Series Board was receptive to his proposal to build a dance floor and bring in country bands throughout the summer to complement the rodeo series.
“I made my proposal and the board went for it. Everyone said they’d been waiting to do it and that they were waiting for someone to spearhead it,’ he said.
Saturday’s performer is Boomer McLennan and the Rhythm Rangers. Fuller is lining up others for coming weeks.
Fuller said he is still looking for volunteers to assist with the rodeo dances.
“We need the community’s support,” he said. “This is all new for us, and we’re excited to make it happen. It’ll be a lot of fun. All you have to do is wear your cowboy boots and come on down.”
