GIRARD — The Crawford County Fair Rodeo brought smiles to all ages at the Crawford County Fairgrounds on Wednesday night.

Bareback Bronc Riding, Breakaway Roping, and Saddle Bronc Riding were few of the events showcased at the event.

Breakaway Roping is an activity where a calf is roped by a rider, without being tied, like in other variations of calf roping.

Kids in the audience were also invited to participate in a sheep chase. Six sheep were released, and the kids were tasked with pursuing the sheep and grabbing one of the ribbons that each one carried.

The Rodeo is a two-day event, with the finale scheduled for Thursday.

Events featured riders from all-around the region, including a few from Girard and other parts of southeast Kansas.

Thursday’s events included Team Saddling, Bull Riding and Cowgirl Barrel Racing.

Crowd participation was a large part of Thursday’s event, with the packed crowd seemingly having a great time.

The Crawford County Fair continues to roll through Friday and Saturday, featuring events from Tractor Pulls to a Demolition Derby to close the fair on Saturday.
