The 77th XIT Rodeo and Reunion Posters are in every window of every business in Dalhart marking the week of the wild, wild west in the Texas Panhandle. It’s only five weeks until free feeds, cowboys, queen candidates and the best parade in Dalhart. New t-shirts with this year’s design and tickets for this year’s Melodrama are on sale at the Dalhart Area Chamber of Commerce.
There will be rodeos and nightly entertainment during the three day affair. The Melodrama directed by Dalhart’s own enthusiastic and hilarious melodrama queen, Tammy Schneiderjan, will be presented Thursday, August 1 at 7:00 p.m., Friday, August 2 at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday, August 3 at 2:00 p.m. This year’s play will have you digging, scratching and laughing your way out of a field of your favorite characters in a story about Po’ Tater farmer and his family.
The Little Mr. & Miss. XIT Pageant will be held on Saturday, July 20. Contestants for the Little Mr. or Miss. pageant must live in Dallam or Hartley County and must be three or four years old on the day of the pageant. Entry forms are available for download on the XIT Rodeo and Reunion
website or may be picked up at the Dalhart Chamber of Commerce.
