The Lynden PRCA Rodeo, which features professional rodeo action, both roughstock events and timed events, and an all-around cowboy crown, opens at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Aug. 23-24, at the Northwest Washington Fair and Events Center, 1775 Front St.
In roughstock events, bareback riding, saddle bronc riding and bull riding, a contestant's score depends equally on his or her performance and the animal's performance. Timed events feature steer wrestling, team roping, tie-down roping and barrel racing.
