The Rifle Humanity Restoration crew is hosting a “hello rodeo” from noon to 1:30 p.m. Friday at Heinz Park and across the street from Rifle Middle School.

“It’s a rally-type event where people can come to connect with others by waving, holding signs with positive messages and just being friendly,” a news release from the city of Rifle states.

The first 20 people who show up and pledge to “smile, wave and be kind” can get a goodie bag with t-shirt, buttons and other times. There is a limit of one bag per family. 

“Bilingual yard signs will also be available for Rifle citizens to put up in front of their homes or businesses,” the release states.

Since the event is outside, social distancing should be able to be maintained, but “please bring a mask for times when you might be close to others.”
