77th Omak Stampede and Suicide Race


taken at the painted wall downtown Omak

Omak is the home of the world known  Suicide race. This coming weekend is gonna be a big day for rodeo fan from  all over the world. It always fall every second weekend of August. I went there two days ago just checking how's the preparation  look like. . I am always amazed by the Indian Teepees and the pow in the Indian encampment side.
This is taken 8/10/10
Suicide race in Omak is known to be one of the deadliest horse race in the world, reason enough that it actually raise eyebrows for animal activist. It actually put the race on hold few few years but it started again just few years ago.Competitors rushes downhill  and slam on the river just below the slope.
