This being the 25th Anniversary event, the committee has really decided to kick it up a bunch of notches! Having Jake Worthington on Friday night and then Ned LeDoux on Saturday, really add to the excitement of an always great event. The evening starts with always fun mutton bustin’, followed by top notch bull riding and sure to be entertaining wild steer race, then heading over to see a top touring country performance should make for a memorable night.”
