Head to the Brown County Fairgrounds for the second annual Ranch Rodeo! Events will include branding, bronc riding, sorting, trailer loading, and wild cow milking. Awards of the night will be Top Hand and Top Horse. If you’re looking to compete, it’s $1000 for a 5-man team. If you’re just looking to come out for the day and enjoy the festivities, it’s $10 a person ages 13 and up. Anyone 12 and under is free. Gates open at 11:00 AM, and the event kicks off at 1:00 PM. Taking place that same day is this year’s Bug Bash Crawfish Cookoff. All proceeds from the cookoff will go to Brown County’s VFD. If you’re looking for even more fun, the Pride of Texas Carnival is also taking place at the fairgrounds. That means rides, games, live music, drinks, and food galore.
