More than 3,000 will converge on the Backachers Ranch Friday and Saturday for the Arkansas State Rodeo Finals, which is hosted by the Arkansas Cowboys Association.
The top 15 contestants in the state will compete in various events including team roping, saddleback riding and bull riding, among others.
Opening ceremonies for both Friday and Saturday will begin at 6:45 p.m., but a new event, 50-and-over team roping, will take place as an exhibition before the ceremonies at 5 p.m.
Nearly $75,000 in cash and prizes will be given out during the events, including bicycles for kids in attendance.
Tickets are available at the door and are $8 for adults, $5 for children 7-12 and free admission for children 6 and under with a paid adult.
