August in Akron, and the rest of Washington County, turns to thoughts of the annual Eastern Colorado Roundup. The Roundup features fun for all ages with 4-H youth projects, good hamburgers and cotton candy. Horse, swine, dairy cows, goats, rabbits, cattle, sheep and poultry all call the Washington County Fairgrounds home during this annual event.
Bring the family to watch the Rodeo or the NSPA Tractor Pull. Saturday night is always a good show featuring Top Country Music stars. This year we will be featuring Jason Michael Carroll and The Casey Donahew Band.
