Mid-State Fair adds new rodeo events to lineup
Editor’s note: The initial version of a press release sent out by the Mid-State Fair erroneously stated that one aspect of the Fiesta Del Charro event would be “Portuguese” style bull fighting. The Fiesta Del Charro event will feature “American” style bull fighting, in which a man tries to avoid and out-maneuver a bull.
