Jingle Bell Rock Contest

The Jingle Bell Rock....One of the longest, and craziest, traditions in Pueblo, Colorado.

Where else will you grab your family, friends, teams and literally trip over yourself to FIND A ROCK!  And they say Black Friday is Crazy.

I have to admit, as crazy at it is, it is so much fun!

This tradition is sponsored by KPHT 95.5 Pueblo's Greatest Hits radio station.  They hide a ROCK and broadcast clues to where it is.

You will see people combing fields, searching trashcans (although I have never understood this one), running into businesses....no place is off limits.  Even with KPHT knowing that hiding the ROCK in a busy area and making the decision to NOT do that...people will still hold up traffic in search of the ROCK.

So why do people do this?  Maybe it is the $10,000+ in cash and prizes for the winner(s).  Although the prize would be nice I do not believe that is why many do this.  From the beginning of the contest until the ROCK has been found you cannot go anywhere; out to eat, movies, work, shopping, without hearing people talk about it.  I know why I do it.....I know I will never win but it is fun to be part of the tradition...and maybe I might just win.  

Christmas is about coming together and I guess this is one way for the community to come together...of course it is still a contest.  It is nice to see the community working together (okay as together as a $10,000+ prize contest will allow).  People share their thoughts on the clues...or steer someone in the wrong direction but for a short time we are all one.  There isn't executives, blue collar, medical, secretarial, black, white, brown, as we are all the same when we go trudging out in 10 degree weather looking for a ROCK!!

Who will win this year?  


Jimmy's Tavern is starting their own tradition:  This will be the first year of the Jingle Bell Sock!  There will be $150.00 prize for the 1st place winner with smaller prizes for 2nd and 3rd.  This contest will begin on November 25th and run until Christmas.  If you would like to participate in this contest you must stayed tuned to this blog as all details and clues will be provided here.  

Good Luck!!

  7. I'm really loving the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues? A small number of my blog visitors have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari. Do you have any suggestions to help fix this problem?

  8. First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I've had a hard
    time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to
    15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any ideas or tips? Cheers!
