Asphalt Cowboys Will Host 69th Annual Barbecue At Lake Redding Park Sunday

Around Five Thousand Pounds of Tri-Tip will be cooked to perfection in the Asphalt Cowboys’ biggest fundraiser of the year this Sunday. Money raised from the 69th annual barbecue in Lake Redding Park will be used for a variety of community needs, including Rodeo Week activities, but the cowboys also help local law enforcement agencies. Last month they presented a $16,000 check to Shasta County Search and Rescue for 35 new radios they were required to purchase. They also gave Redding Police $11,000 for 5 ballistic shields to equip the city’s school resource officers. A ticket for the event gets a plate of Tri-Tip or Chicken along with cole slaw, garlic bread and the famous cowboys beans. Diners can take it to go or stay for live entertainment and an auction of some great items including a Silverthorn Resort houseboat vacation. It’ll be $12 the day of the event, but advance tickets are just $10. Ticket information is at
