It's gonna be a really cool thing when they bring those two things together on June 1st.   The Texas Route 66 Festival is kicking off in Amarillo to celebrate all things Route 66.

Since the Coors Cowboy Club Ranch Rodeo takes place on the first weekend in June it all works out.

The Coors Ranch Rodeo has been taking place in Amarillo since 1987!

The Coors Ranch Rodeo will kick off Amarillo's portion of the Texas Route 66 Festival on Thursday, June 1 with all the ranch rodeo action.  Come see all these ranch cowboys showcase the cowboy way of life.
