It was so great to see the turnout for the 76th annual Nyssa Nite Rodeo.
The parade was great with entries ranging from four wheels (more if you count the tires on the fire and BLM vehicles) to four legs.
All around the rodeo grounds people were greeting friends, enjoying delicious food and the rodeo action.
Congratulations to the 2023 Nyssa Nite Rodeo Queen Kiya Servatius! Finally, a big thank you to the rodeo board, volunteers, sponsors and everyone involved with this event.
