The 51st annual Deep South PRCA Rodeo broke last year's attendance record, drawing about 4,600 spectators during the three-night event on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
"This year beat last year's attendance," said Deep South PRCA president Jeff Moore. "We are well-aware of how the economy is now and it says something about the rodeo when this many people attend."
Visitors and participants chose to ignore the intense weekend heat to fill the stands at the PRCA Areana, which was packed each night.
