James, LJ, Cinch and Dawson were seen "Clownin' Around" at the 2012 Rodeo Royalty Competition while Tom - the 5th clown - was getting his face on. The 5-clowns were caring on the theme of this years rodeo as they helped out in the Exhibit Hall on Tuesday evening during the Rodeo Royalty Competition.
The morning's slack competitions at the fairgrounds are designed to weed out some competitors before the main event starts tonight. Steer roping this morning drew a minimal crowd, but cowboys and stable hands were busy getting ready for what's yet to come. (Photos by Tracee Davis)
