When we plan our Memorial Day weekend trips between Reno and LA we always take into consideration the traffic for Bishop’s Mule Days Celebration. This year will be the 40th annual celebration on May 19-24 at the Tri-County Fairgrounds in Bishop, CA. This year four-time Grammy nominee and former CMA Horizon Award winner Joe Nichols will be featured at the 2009 Bishop Mule Days Thursday night concert.
From the Mule Days website: “Highlights of the Celebration include the Thursday night concert, featuring Country Music stars, the longest running non-motorized parade on Saturday morning, Steer roping and penning, an event normally reserved for quarter horses, and the Packer’s Scramble – the wildest, nosiest and funniest event of the weekend.
There are also barbecues, country dances and an arts & crafts show. All taking place at the foot of the beautiful Eastern Sierra. “
