Cotton bale rolling

Cameron Bechtel, left, and Taylor Randall use some muscle and technique in the cotton bale rolling contest at the 2022 Cotton Days in Coolidge.

A longstanding tradition of the Coolidge Chamber of Commerce is to gift small cotton bales to visiting guest speakers as a way of signifying that since the city’s founding in 1925, Coolidge has always been a cotton-farming town.

Even 1981 chamber President J.F. Robinson famously said, “Without cotton there wouldn’t be Coolidge.”
