Wild Wild West Fest wraps up

The wild weekend in downtown Pueblo is drawing to a close.

Those with the Chamber of Commerce say this year's Wild Wild West Fest was a big hit.

Rain hindered them a little bit Saturday, but they had a record number of visitors friday.

Having new rides and plenty of vendors helped, plus everyone loves meeting the professional bull riders.

"The cities they go to you just see them in the arena," said Rod Slyhoff, President and CEO of the Greater Pueblo Chamber of Commerce. "Here in Pueblo, they get out and stroll the streets and get up close with the people, so people really enjoy that."

Along with the Chamber of Commerce and PBR, the festival is made possible because of 400 volunteers.
