PHILADELPHIA, Miss. (WTOK) - The Justa Cowboy Association's Annual Philadelphia Black Rodeo is at the Neshoba County Coliseum this weekend.
"I’m always excited to come to Philadelphia because of the warmth we get from the people here. It's very important to come here, because there is just awesome people in the city of Philadelphia,” says Justa Cowboy Association vice-president, Andy Wade.
Wade says the show will feature multiple events, including bull riding, barrel racing, team roping and a special live performance by singer Tyree Neal.
