All right, rodeo fans, it's time for "Rodeo in the Rock," presented by the Diamond State Rodeo Association. The event, sanctioned by the International Gay Rodeo Association, is three days of ropin' and ridin' and racin' and all-around good times.

On Thursday night, Miss Kitty's Saloon hosts "A Loyal Royal Welcome" for all the out-of-towners and on Friday night, they'll host "A Rodeo Royal Night" after registration at the Arkansas State Fairgrounds. Also on Friday, Trax in North Little Rock hosts a meet-and-greet and will be firing up the grill to provide the rodeo fans with burgers and fixings, starting at 5:30 p.m.

The rodeo competitions start up Saturday and Sunday at 9 a.m. and there's lots of other activities throughout the day. There's a cookout at 6 p.m. and a dance party at 8 p.m. on Saturday. The awards ceremony will be Sunday at 6 p.m. More info here.
