Still No Final Decision on Mule Days

Mule Days

In 1970, Bishop Mule Days Celebration rose from humble beginnings to bring a world-class mule show to the Eastern Sierra. We have become the premier mule show in North America. Our annual event brings visitors from all walks of life: RV enthusiasts, campers, equine enthusiasts, contestants, celebrities, fans and friends. Mule Days has endured through recessions, high fuel prices, devastating equine diseases and the loss of many dedicated, dear friends and volunteers.

Maybe I’ve been watching too many “Little… Read more »

Just a small correction. Mule Days started in 1969. A little heavy on the pitch for money but I’m not a professional fund raiser. Start treating the fairgrounds like an urban business and it will fold. This is Bishop, not a large community. Maybe you could consider what other rural… Read more »

Yeah baby, yeah! Mardi Gras, Inyo County style! I suppose this could work so long as they bring their own t.p., face masks, food, hand sanitizer, unemployment checks and big government bailout money to spend on the local community. Look how well this strategy worked for the Big Easy. But,… Read more »
