Mexia area rodeo enthusiasts are counting down the days to the annual Limestone County Fair Association Rodeo, coming this Friday-Saturday, April 8-9.
Gates open at 6:30, and the rodeo starts at 8 p.m. in the show barn at the county fairgrounds, near Groesbeck.
Some of the best male and female competitors from across the state will converge there to show their skills in the rodeo that is approved both by the UPRA and the CPRA.
Popular youth events, like mutton bustin’ and youth barrel racing, as well as funny adult contests, like wild cow milking and double mugging, will take place during the rodeo, organizers say.
Admission is $10 for adults, and $5 for children 5 and under. A wide range of refreshments will be available to suit most any taste.
Friday night will also offer a calf scramble for youth.
