Local Elementary School Students to Tour California Rodeo Heritage Museum

1,000 Children to experience Rodeo History
05/17/2015

The California Rodeo Salinas’ Heritage Museum is one of Salinas’ hidden gems. The building, located at the Salinas Sports Complex at 1034 N.  Main Street, is home to an authentic Wells Fargo stagecoach, displays of rodeo clown costumes and cowboy attire, saddles, cowboy hats, tack and more from the Rodeo’s most famous alumni. It is open during the California Rodeo Salinas each year in July and by appointment only throughout the year, but between May 18th and May 29th, almost 1,000 local elementary school students will walk through the doors to tour the facility and learn about the history of the California Rodeo Salinas. The Wells Fargo Stagecoach room includes interactive displays and there will be a leather artist on hand showing how to stamp leather to make saddles, belts and more. Members of the Museum Committee will serve as tour guides to the students and teachers and answer questions they may have. The tours are presented by Mann Packing this year and on Friday May 22nd and May 29th, Mann Packing will be on site with their pea pod mascot, talking to the kids and giving them healthy treats. 

The 105th California Rodeo Salinas takes place July 16th-19th, 2015. During those days, the California Rodeo Heritage Museum will be open before and during the performances; there will be a jewelry artist on site as well as a leather braider to observe while wandering through the museum.
