If you were in downtown Youngstown on Thursday afternoon, you might have come across a man riding a bull. It might seem bizarre, but the man was actually promoting the AFR 45 Rodeo at the Garwood Arena on Middleton Road in Columbiana.

The event is scheduled for Friday, November 10, and Saturday, November 11, with performances starting at 7:00 p.m. on Friday and at 1:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. on Saturday. Tickets cost $15 per person, and children aged five and under get in for free.

The rodeo will feature various events, including saddle bronc, bareback bronc, steer wrestling, cowgirls breakaway roping, team roping, tie-down roping, cowgirls barrel racing, and bull riding. The top 12 contestants in each event will compete for the championship title.
