The community of Ramona offers an unbelievable number of things to do and see. From annual events to spur-of-the-moment adventures, you can easily fill a weekend with fun and excitement. Here are some of the activities a trip to Ramona can offer:
RAMONA RODEO Every May Ramona’s locals don their hats, their boots and their spurs and head to the Fred Grand Arena for the annual Ramona Rodeo. While there are lots of “just-for-fun” activities throughout the rodeo weekend (like lawnmower races and kid’s roping contests) the Ramona Rodeo is the real deal with barrel-racing, bull riding, roping and steer wrestling events that draw a serious cowboy/ cowgirl crowd.
