Buckin’ Time: Get ready for some fun this weekend at annual rodeo

LOS FRESNOS — Put on your cowboy boots, cowboy hat and tighten your cowboy buckle.

It’s going to get country over the weekend with the annual PRCA rodeo and concert.

“We’re going to have fantastic weather,” said Larry Cantu, event organizer. “It’s family fun entertainment for all ages.”

The event is packed with a fun-filled weekend of rodeo, concerts, carnival and the Cameron County Fair and Livestock Show.

“Some of the top cowboys in the PRCA rodeo will participate in the event,” Cantu said. “It’s not only a rodeo but it’s good entertainment and we keep it at a reasonable price.”

Rio Hondo High students and many other area FFA clubs are geared up and ready to show their animals for big prizes.

Areanna Gonzalez will be showing her hog named Baby at the stock show. She was at the rodeo grounds yesterday getting ready.

She said she has been participating in the stock show for four years.

“Its one of the best things I’ve ever done,” Gonzalez said. “I’m trying to get first place.”
