We have gone to indoor and outdoor demolition derbies, rodeos and circus here. In August they hold the Weber County Fair with lots of things to do. Next, to the arena are several soccer and softball fields and a playground.

I was visiting from the UK and was lucky to be in the area at the time when the Golden Spike Rodeo was held at the Box Elder Fairgrounds at Tremonton. The atmosphere was very friendly and the riding skills on show were amazing. I will definitely go to the rodeo again if this is a representative smple.

Nice rodeo with good competition. Golden Spike Arena is easy to get to, with plenty of parking. Has a real home town feel to it.

Both large and small arenas have good footing,, good barn areas good bleachers, good sound equipment. Don't need brilliance in writing--a nice set of facilities with attentive employees

Winter rodeo series here is fun and economical. Summer fair venue features lots of horse events, the Jrs and draft horse pulls are fun to watch. Reasonable in price. The demolition derby is very popular.
