The sun has disappeared behind the west hill, where the shadows of the carnival and the Ferris wheel fall onto the arena ground. The crowds have gathered on the grassy hillside to wait for the arena to start filling up with horses and cowboys and cowgirls. Most of those gathered on the grass were prepared enough to sit on blankets and towels, while ...
