Contestants will race, ride, rope and wrestle against time at the annual Clearwater Rodeo, June 27-29.
Mutton Bustin', for kids ages 3-7, is scheduled to begin each night at 7 p.m., followed by the rodeo competition at 7:30 p.m. Bullfighters Dave Jantzi and Pat Riha will work hard to keep the contesants safe, while rodeo clown Shawn Stutzman entertains the crowd with his crazy antics.

The street dance will follow the rodeo on Friday and Saturday nights, featuring the music of Nashville Song Writers.
