The Lindale Championship Rodeo is back in full swing for its 30th year.

Hundreds of families enjoyed steer wrestling, bareback riding and cattle roping, among other events, Thursday at the Lindale Rodeo Arena.

Committee co-chair Kate Trull said this rodeo brings in competitors and people who help organize the events from across the states, with folks coming from as far as Wyoming.

For Trull, getting to watch young children light up with joy when they see animals makes all the hard work and planning worth it.

“I can’t pick a favorite part of the rodeo - every event is my favorite. I just love the whole thing,” she laughed.

The rodeo runs through Saturday, with gates opening at 6 p.m.

Mutton busting begins at 6:15 p.m. and rodeo action starts at 7:30 p.m. each day.

Tickets are available at Texas Bank and Trust locations, Brookshire’s, Lindale Area Chamber of Commerce, Southside Bank, Kidd Jones and Fleming Farm and Ranch.
