The New Boston Pioneer Days Festival kicks off with the rodeo on Friday, Aug. 11. The fun carries on all the way to the following Saturday, Aug. 19 with concerts and carnival rides.

It's fair time. As soon as the Miller County Fair wraps up we travel to New Boston for the rodeo this weekend and the carnival rides, fair food and games start up next week.

The rodeo arena is the New Boston Round-Up Club and is located at 1154 Daniels Chapel Road in New Boston. On Monday the annual treasure hunt begins. Carnival rides open on Wednesday.
