Bean Day

Today was Bean Day in Wagon Mound, New Mexico. Festivities were held all weekend in this small town of about 300 people.

Yesterday, there were mud bog races. Apparently, mud bogging is a big deal in this area.

Here are pictures of a few of the vehicles. There were dozens!

Once the event began, the mud did fly! And, boy, was it loud! 

As time passed and many vehicles drove through the mud, it got deeper and deeper.

This was the first of several vehicles to get stuck in the mud. 

There was also a rodeo all three days of the holiday weekend. The kids sheep riding looked like fun for some of the kids.

Bull riding is probably the most popular or most well-known event. 

Bronc riding is equally popular.

There were all kinds of roping events and other events as well, but no pictures of those taken. In all, an interesting place and eventful celebration.


  1. Wow, you caught some great action shots!

  2. Is that where the expression "stick in the mud" comes from"? Who knew?!!!
