Photographer, Ruedi Hofmann took these amazing photographs of a Mexican Vaquero Rodeo next to the Newburgh Armory a few weeks ago called Rodeo Tierra Caliente. According to Ruedi there was a great turn out, 300-500 in attendance with great music, great food and families. Also in attendance were Senator William J. Larkin, Jr and William Kaplan. The next Vaquero Rodeo will be June 22nd.
According to the United States census, Latinos or Hispanics make up 47.9% of the population in the City of Newburgh. There is a lot to be seen in this city with a population just under 30,000!
