It was a hot day, but the nearly 100 degree temperatures didn't keep more than 5,000 people from filling the stands at the Boys Ranch Rodeo.
Bull riding, mutton busting, broncs, funnymen, this year's rodeo had it all, including thousands of cheering fans.
The presdient and CEO of Cal Farley's Boys Ranch tells us he's pleased with this years turnout.
Dan Adams says, "to be able to get out here over the course of a weekend 6-8,000 people is just incredible."
Our very own Andy Justus was out there cheering the kids on.
Boys Ranch provides opportunities for many kids from all over the world, and Adams says the rodeo gives them a once in a lifetime opportunity.
He says, "weather it's riding around a barrel with a stick horse or getting on the back of a bare back bronc, it's pretty impressive, I think, and something that all kids don't get to do and appreciate. "
If you didn't catch the rodeo, it's not too late.
September 1 is the last day, and Adams says if you're not coming for the food, prizes, or rodeo experience, just come to support the kids.
"It's always nice for the kids who have competed in this to have people cheering them on, Adams says."
Speaking of the food, Adams tells us they roasted 6,000 pounds of beef for the weekend rodeo.
Just to get a taste of the food, or for the entertainment, AdventureFEST starts at 10 September 1, followed by the rodeo at 2:30pm.
