If you’ve been in Arizona for any time, you’ve heard of Earnhardt Auto Centers and their “No Bull” approach to automobile sales and service. The Earnhardt Auto Centers team also loves and supports all things rodeo, including the 39th Annual Gilbert Days events coming up in November.
This year’s Gilbert Days Rodeo happens November 10-12 at Welcome Home Ranch, 26601 S. Val Vista Drive. Gates open at 4 p.m. on Friday, 2 p.m. on Saturday, and 11 a.m. on Sunday, with competition starting three hours later each day.
While the rodeo is a huge draw, Gilbert Days offers many related events. The Gilbert Days 5K and 1 Mile Run happen Friday, November 17 at Freestone Park. The Mascot Run starts at 4:30 p.m., with the 1 Mile Fun Run at 4:45 p.m. and the 5K Run at 5 p.m. Register online or on site from 3-4 p.m.
For runners who want even more challenge, the Gilbert Half Marathon and 10K Run is scheduled for Saturday, November 18 at 7 a.m. Proceeds from the Gilbert event benefit Shun the Sun Foundation, a nonprofit organization that raises money to build shade structures and provide educational information on different types of skin cancer. Runners trek through the heart of Gilbert on a route that finishes with the Gilbert Days Parade.
The Gilbert Days Parade takes to the streets on Saturday, November 18 at 8:30 a.m. in the Gilbert Heritage District. Look for floats, marching bands and other groups from the local and surrounding communities. This year’s parade theme is #GILBERTKINDNESS, and entries will display how their organization supports kindness in their communities. Don’t miss this fun tradition!
