The stands, the bar and the hillsides were full of rodeo fans today at the Stanthorpe Showgrounds.

Gates at the Stockman’s Arena opened at 10.00am this morning for a 12.00pm pre-performance, and a 2.00pm main performance that included team roping, barrel races, bull rides, bareback rides and breakaway roping competitions.

Attendees were treated to DJ music, delicious food and drink, and the some of the best rodeo entertainment in Queensland.

Stay tuned for next week’s 11 March publications of Warwick & Stanthorpe Today for more pictures of the event.
