The 2013 PRCA Rodeo galloped into St. Croix County last weekend, with good crowds attending the shows Friday and Saturday nights.

Not only was there bronc and bull riding, but entertaining performances galore during the program. Some local youngsters also got in the action as they participated in the Muttin' Bustin' competition (riding on the back of a sheep).

Money raised by the event goes to help support ongoing improvement projects on the St. Croix County Fairgrounds in Glenwood City.
