Vale's annual 4th of July Rodeo made a grand return after a hiatus in 2020 due to Covid, bringing cowboys and cowgirls of all ages to Vale's Shamrock Arena for a large range of events. Taking place during a historic heat wave, the rodeo commenced on Thursday, July 1 - featuring a national anthem performance by the Willowcreek Elementary School students - and ended with a fireworks show on Sunday, July 4, to celebrate the national holiday.
