Young Spectators

Young spectators in western wear watch the rodeo from behind a wire fence.

The Flint Hills Rodeo makes it a point to cater to younger spectators — tomorrow’s rodeo fans. “Kids 12 and under will get into Thursday’s performance free,” rodeo association President Buck Bailey told the Hillsboro Free Press. “The first 200 children in the gates Thursday evening will also get a ticket for a free hotdog.” Credit: Jeff Tuttle
