Get A Taste Of The Wild West In New York At The Gerry Rodeo, The Oldest Rodeo East Of The Missippi

You may feel like New York is pretty far from the old wild west. After all, we’re right on the eastern coast and in many of our cities, you may notice a distinct lack of cowboy hats. But did you know that New York is home to the oldest consectively-running rodeo east of the Mississippi River? The little town of Gerry in Chautauqua County is small on population, with only about 2,000 residents. What they lack in size, they more than make up for in fun with their annual rodeo!
