There was plenty of family fun during Alix Days last month, and a big part of that was found in two days of rodeo action.

The Alix Agricultural Society hosted the rodeo, which ran Aug. 19th and 20th and featured everything from barrel racing, team roping, and breakaway to tie-down roping, sheep riding, and calf scrambles. There were several age categories included as well.

“The Alix Ag Society is happy to report that the rodeo was a success,” said Mandi Peterson, one of the event’s organizers.

“The weather cooperated, the contestants and stock put on two great performances, our volunteers gave 110 percent and the cabaret band played well into the early morning hours.

“It was so nice to see old friends and new faces and we look forward to doing it again next year.”
