LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - Want to see some of the top cowboys in the country? Then check out the Longview rodeo.

The Longview PRCA Rodeo features 31 national rodeo finalists along with eight world champions. From fighting bulls, to activities for the kids this year's rodeo is sure to be a blast, even if it's a little wet and muddy.

"A million dollar rain and a $50,000 dollar rodeo, they just go together," said Terry Stearns. "It's perfect! Load up, eight o'clock be here, we're gonna start!"

You heard him! The rodeo kicks off at eight tonight. Tickets at the gate are $12 for adults and $4 for kids. The rodeo ends Saturday night.
