One of the annual Campbell County Fair’s most popular events is the Ranch Rodeo, where local cowboys and cowgirls from across a five-state region compete in events similar to everyday ranch tasks at Cam-Plex Morningside Park.
At stake are champion buckles, a winners’ purse, and additional money added… not to mention a year of bragging rights.
“This year’s stock and competition were incredible,” said Campbell County Fair Coordinator Liz Edwards Tuesday.
