The Cowgirls of West Texas started their jackpot breakaway this morning. Competitors run two rounds each and must rope a Calf in the shortest amount of time and can receive around $2,200 . The West Texas Fair and Rodeo got underway yesterday with a sneak peek of the Fair with free admission to the fairgrounds. Chair of the West Texas Rodeo Committee Taylor Long encourages locals to come to visit, "We’d love to see more people come and enjoy the rodeo and kinda get the look at it and of course get to the fair, eat a bunch of food and ride some rides, It's a really good time.”

The first rodeo performance with many competitions such as bull riding, roping and barrel racing. Admission to the rodeo is $15 for adults and $6 for children. Friday is free for college students and all prices include access to the fairgrounds.
