"People are excited for the PBR to come to town," said Rod Innes, rodeo chairman. "We've put together a good show, from a good bull contractor to clowns, because we know fans appreciate not only good rodeo action but good entertainment."
Jimmy Crowthers of New Frontier Rodeo, Gypsum, will bring bucking bulls to the event, and rodeo clown and barrelman Justin Rumford, Ponca City, Okla., will entertain.
Announcer is Troy Goodridge, Fort Scott, and bullfighters are Mark Peters and Danny Munsell. A dance featuring Mark Nebel will be held after the PBR June 2 at the rodeo grounds.

The PBR is held in conjunction with the Riverless Festival, which runs June 2 and 3 and features an arts and crafts fair/flea market, music on the square, 2-mile run/walk, men's softball tournament, state sanctioned kids pedal pushers event, open horseshow, games, and vendors.
