  • Bull Riding

  • Breakaway Roping
  • Tie Down Roping

If Saturday’s rodeo activities aren’t hot enough, attendees can stop by the First Annual “Stars and Stripes” Chili Cook-Off hosted by the American Legion Leo Collins Post 229.  Lasting from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m., the Cook-Off will have entrants competing for the “Mayor’s Choice,” “Council’s Choice,” and “People’s Choice” awards.  Guests can sample chili entries for free, for more information about the Chili Cook-Off contact Larry Baxter from American Legion

Last, city residents will also be able to participate in the last of three Community Clean-Up events held at the Stadium this year.  The City of Adelanto, in coordination with AVCO Disposal Company will allow residents to get rid of unwanted items for free—eliminating the need for a special trip to the landfill.  “They can bring mattresses, furniture, household trash, televisions, computer monitors, small tires (without the rims) paints, oil—just about anything that would find its way into a trash can, the landfill or worse…a field in Adelanto,” said Steven Peltier, Community Safety Manager. The only restricted item that residents cannot bring is hazardous waste.  The Clean-Up will begin at 8:00 a.m. and last until 1:00 p.m.

The last Community Clean-Up in July collected  54.7 tons of trash. For more information, contact:

“We’re entering a busy time of year for Adelanto for events and activities, no one will be able to say there’s nothing to do in Adelanto,” said Kerr.
