Rodeo Scene

Boasting the "Smallest Fair in America," nineteen people who live in Amidon, North Dakota, all join together to organize and put on the fair. The Slope County Fair Rodeo offers $1000 in purses for the cowboys and cowgirls who triumph in its saddle bronco, steer wrestling, goat tying, bull riding, calf roping, and other competitions. Fairs thrive across the country blending community traditions with entertainment spectacles.
