Night number one of the Nacogdoches Pro Rodeo and Steer Show gets underway tonight at the Expo Center.

Around 7 tonight, we'll have the first round of mutton bustin' - which in case you didn't know, is a bunch of youngsters trying their best to hold on for dear life on the back of a sheep. 

The rodeo itself gets underway at 7:30 tonight thru Saturday.

Tonight, thanks to the efforts of some area churches, you can get into the rodeo for just $1 or you can get in free by bringing a cheap pair of flip flops in the Soles for the Soul promotion.
