The 110th National Western Stock Show kicked off last week and it’s already setting record-breaking attendance. All this after discussion in the last few years of the stock show leaving Denver.
Well, it looks like the people have spoken. And with a huge renovation of the complex planned, the Stock Show is here to stay. Which is great news for Denver and our economy.
Colorado’s Best real estate expert Chris Mygatt, the president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, stopped by the show along with some special guests to talk about the Stock Show and what its presence means for Colorado homeowners. He was joined by Madelaine Mills, Miss Rodeo Colorado, and Megan Haag, Miss Rodeo North Dakota to talk about real estate and the Stock Show. Click here to watch the full segment.
