BOONVILLE — The Boonville Jaycees Rodeo, held at the Brady Showground outside Boonville, attracted around 800 spectators Friday for its opening night, Boonville Jaycees Rodeo Chairperson Angela Marcum said. There were 285 participants and 10 events in the rodeo.

"It’s a good rodeo, no rain,” said Brady Wilson, 22, a participant of the calf roping and team roping events.

Many spectators came with their families. Treyton Ginter took his son Trent Ginter to the rodeo for the second year in a row.

“It’s good entertainment for the kids. Kids love it,” Treyton Ginter said. “We will be here tomorrow (Saturday) night.”

The rodeo will last two days. Marcum said she expects double the number of spectators from roughly 1,000 last year.

“If we continue to have successful year, we plan to make it a tradition,” Marcum said.

The rodeo started in 2009.

“We decided to do a community event, so that we will have something for the entire family to enjoy,” Marcum said.
