In late July, Lewis Events traveled north to Chico, California for a western-themed birthday celebration, picnic style.  The host pulled out all the stops and made it an unforgettable experience for the 300+ guests dressed in their best frontier duds.Lewis Events western picnic ChicoWestern picnic Chico

Chico Catering did a fabulous job BBQing a western feast and the local Elks lodge was an ideal location for the celebration.  Guests were entertained by a trick roping, whip cracking, gun spinning, and square dancing showcase all kept moving by the cowboy DJ/MC.  Non-stop activities included panning for gold, virtual cow milking, corn hole tournament, calf & trick roping lessons, virtual cow branding, corn husk doll making, nerf shooting gallery, water slides, and inflatable games.

Not far from Chico at this same time, the Dixie fire was in its early stages and the plume of smoke could be seen from our site.  Nearby, the fire fighting teams were staging their equipment and our hotel parking lot was filled with Cal Fire trucks.  Thanks, first responders!

Roping in Montana

Lewis Events received a request for a trick roping cowboy to perform for a western-themed celebration at an exclusive private resort in Montana.  So when the time arrived, Cowboy Brett flew from Salt Lake City into Bozeman, Montana, picked up a rental car, and began his drive south towards Yellowstone.  He said that as he drove, every mile became more beautiful with lush green pastures and horizons of towering mountain ranges.

Closer . . . Closer . . . and then.

The event location was stunning.  A beautiful alpine setting surrounded by tall pine trees, breathtaking vistas, blue skies, and a gentle breeze. It wasn’t long before the set-up was complete and the crowds began to arrive for a real, old-west picnic and evening of fun.

Guests were greeted by Cowboy Brett in full western gear spinning his trusty trick rope.  As the party progressed, Brett showcased a variety of trick roping stunts with his lasso.  Adults and younger cowpokes were able to get their hands on a genuine trick rope and try their hand at mastering their own roping skills.  Brett brought along his virtual steer and gave everyone a chance to rope the cow with a real, old fashioned lariat.  The day ended with a corral full of new Montana cow folk, ready to hit the cattle drive trail.Trick Roping Near Yellowstone
