While cowboys might not come to mind when you think about Kauai, the truth is that the Island has a rich history of Hawaiian cowboys. Called paniolo, Hawaiian cowboys have been working ranches for more than 100 years.
The Waimea Roundup is a chance for cowboys to show off their skills in a number of Events including team roping, bronc riding, barrel racing, and bull riding. If you have never seen someone try to ride a bull then you don’t know what you’re missing.
Riders only have to stay on the bull for 8 seconds for the ride to be counted. Sounds easy, right? Well, those 8 seconds have been called the most dangerous in professional sports. These skilled paniolo hang on as the bull thrashes and does its best to throw them off.
Both the team and the individual events at the Waimea Roundup require skill, strength, and courage. Attending this Event is a popular Thing to do on Kauai for both locals and visitors, and kids love it as much as adults.
Food and craft vendors are also onsite, so you can grab something to eat or pick up some locally-made items at this Event on Kauai. Add the Waimea Roundup to your list of can’t-miss Kauai Events.
