The Saturday night finals at the Ralph Morgan Rodeo brought a close to this weekend's events in Lauderdale.
The rodeo was a success and is always a great way to spend time with family and friends, said owner Ralph Morgan, who thanked the public for its support.
The rodeo was filled to a near capacity of over 4,000.
The rodeo only comes two times a year; once in April and the other is in August. The proceeds from the event will go to help local charities such as churches and 4-h groups. As always, the concessions were great and the show was even better.
