Rodeo Festival - The annual Franklin County Sheriff’s Posse Championship Rodeo weekend provides a lot of action for both participants and spectators.

Rodeo Parade - A parade of vehicles, wagons and horses will set the tone for the day around 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 30. The parade through downtown will be followed by activities for young and old alike on and around the plaza. There will be games for children, face painting, a by-donation cornbread and bean lunch, and music.

Championship Rodeo - Rodeo action will begin that evening at the arena grounds, located on FM 115, between FM 21 and the south service road to I-30. This year’s two-day event will be Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 30 and 31. The schedule for both nights follows: Kids Rodeo, 6 to 7:15 p.m. (Register at 5:30 p.m.); Grand Entry, 7:30 p.m.; Rodeo performance, 8 p.m.

Rodeo Dance - The Sheriff’s Posse will join with the Franklin County Chamber of Commerce to conduct a Rodeo Dance with live music following the Saturday night performance until about 1 a.m. The dance will either be on the rodeo grounds or in the adjacent Young Farmer Pavilion. Watch the Optic-Herald for more details.
