(music)

voice one:

some of the ways of the old west cowboy are kept alive in jackson hole. in the summer, visitors can go to a rodeo to see competitions based on traditional cowboy skills. some people say it is the truest of american sports.

the rodeo usually begins with a parade of cowboys and their horses. then comes the competition. in one event, riders try to stay on a wild animal for eight seconds. they ride wild horses and large bulls. the animals try to throw the cowboys to the ground. the cowboys try not to fall off.

voice two:

in another event, the cowboy throws a rope around the neck of a young cow. then he tries to tie the rope around three of its legs. the cowboy who does this in the shortest amount of time wins.

visitors to jackson hole can experience different parts of cowboy life. they can ride horses. they can eat meals cooked outdoors over a fire. in the summer, they can watch actors dressed as cowboys perform "the shootout." this short western play has been performed since the nineteen fifties.

voice one:

arts and culture are important in jackson hole. each summer, musicians from around the country perform classical music at the grand teton music festival.

musical guests also visit local schools while they are in town.
