More than 1,400 people attended the Snowmass Rodeo on Aug. 6, the most in a single night this summer.

Darce Vold, executive director, credited the good weather with drawing so many viewers.

“We were delighted with that,” she said.

There are only two rodeos left this season. The rodeo’s annual charity event, “Tough Enough to Wear Pink,” is Aug. 13.

A portion of the nonprofit’s gross sales for the evening will be donated to Hospice of the Valley. In addition, the rodeo and Conundrum Catering, which provides barbecue at the events, will offer cancer survivors free attendance and dinner.

Barbecue, vendors and children’s activities open at 5 p.m. Rodeo events begin at 7.
