AMENIA — The Hudson Valley Rodeo, supporting the Amenia-Wassaic Community Organization and sponsored in part by Silo Ridge Community Foundation, will be held Oct. 2 at Keane Stud, 217 Depot Hill Road, Amenia. Doors open at 3 p.m. and the rodeo begins at 4 p.m. There will be a variety of local food trucks and libations for the adults.
