  • Rex Allen Days

    by GoldenHaze Written Jun 9, 2004

    Rex Allen was one of the last Singing Cowboys of the Silver Screen. He was born in and came from Willcox, and loved the town very much. Every year, during the first weekend in October, we have Rex Allen Days to celebrate his legacy. There is a carnival, booths set up in the park, there is a parade on Saturday morning, rodeos all weekend long, dancing, music, and more. The Cowboy Hall of Fame usually inducts some new members, and old ones are honored. There is also a Rodeo Queen pageant, and the winner is "crowned" during the weekend.
