It's back.

For the first time since 2008, the Callaway County Fair Board is bringing back a longtime staple to its lineup: The rodeo.

"We had enough people inquire about it that we think there would be enough attendance to cover the cost, and we had a lot of good sponsors step up for the rodeo this year," said board president Billy Spencer. "We pretty well went back to the good old times family fun.

"The rodeo has been around for years, and people just expect to see it at the fair."
