Columbine Park will be rockin’ this weekend. Not with loud guitars and bangin’ drums. But with cowboys and some of the meanest, baddest behemoths around.

For the working men and women

Everyone is welcome to attend Septemberfest — Rangely’s annual Labor Day celebration. But Tim Webber, director of the Rangely Recreation and Parks District, which is the main sponsor of this weekend’s events, has some people he would like to personally invite.

In conjunction with Septemberfest, a new event, Woof Fest, will be held Monday at 10:30 a.m. at Elks Park. The event will feature numerous contests, including an essay contest and a photo contest, as well as a silent auction for a handmade quilt.
